Storyboard Text

  • We are taking this to court
  • Peck sold me lands that​ were handed down illegally
  • Supreme Court
  • 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  • Georgia​ has violated the contract clause of the constitution when it repealed the grants (act of 1796 violated article 1 section 10 clause 3).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
