Ridgley et al. v. Van Driesen et al, 211 F.2d 50 (D.C. Cir. 1954)Annotate this Case
Decided March 18, 1954
Mr. Hubert B. Pair, Washington, D. C., with whom Mr. Austin L. Fickling, Washington, D. C., was on the brief, for appellants.
Mr. J. George Gately, Washington, D. C., with whom Mr. James J. Gorman, Jr., Washington, D. C., was on the brief, for appellees.
Before EDGERTON, WILBUR K. MILLER, and FAHY, Circuit Judges.
This appeal is from a judgment denying specific performance of an alleged contract to sell a house. The District Court found, in effect, that appellants did not accept appellees' offer until after appellees had made a valid contract to sell the house to other persons who knew nothing of the offer. The record supports this finding.
