Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 369 F.2d 699 (5th Cir. 1966) October 25, 1966
Rehearing Denied November 23, 1966

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana; Edwin F. Hunter, Jr., Judge.

Meredith T. Holt, Donald E. Walter, Cavanaugh, Brame, Holt & Woodley, Lake Charles, La., for appellants.

Lloyd C. Melancon, New Orleans, La., Porteous & Johnson, New Orleans, La., of counsel, for appellee.

Before RIVES, THORNBERRY and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.


This is an appeal from a judgment in favor of appellee for proctor's fees and expenses incurred in defense of a libel. The district court found that the appellants had contracted to defend the libel, but breached their obligation by failing to timely accept the defense. We agree with the findings and conclusions (R. 91-96) and with the separate opinion (R. 85-90) of the district court, 260 F. Supp. 586. The judgment was right, and it is affirmed.
