We are taking this to court
Peck sold me lands that were handed down illegally
State what you have to say Fletcher
I told you already Fletcher I didn't know that
Georgia has violated the contract clause of the constitution when it repealed the grants (act of 1796 violated article 1 section 10 clause 3).
The court conceded that the fraud underlying the grants was deplored, but it also rejected Fletchers argument that Georgia had sovereign power
The court reasoned that Peck was an innocent 3rd party who entered into 2 valid contracts. Thus falling outside the original fraud the Georgia legislature sought to undo.
Fletchers suit against Peck was dismissed and Georgia's law repealing the grants was struck down
