Property Law Keyed to Singer
Pacific Gamble Robinson Co. v. Lapp
Conrad C. Lapp (Defendant) acquired all the stock of a fruit company in Colorado. He later married in Colorado, but the stock remained his sole property. In order to assist Defendant and enable the company to stay in business, Pacific Gamble Robinson Company (Petitioner) agreed to continue supplying produce if Defendant agreed to sign a promissory note on which he would be personally liable along with the fruit company. Defendant’s wife did not sign the note, and only his earnings and property were subject to the debt. Defendant defaulted on the note and moved to Washington. Petitioner brought suit to recover against the company, Defendant, and the marital property.
