Forderer v. Schmidt – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Forderer v. Schmidt, 146 F. 480 (1906), the issue was whether a partition of real estate was valid. The plaintiff, Forderer, had purchased a tract of land from Schmidt, who had previously purchased it from a third party. Forderer then sought to partition the land into two separate parcels, one for himself and one for Schmidt. The court held that the partition was invalid because Schmidt had not consented to it. The court reasoned that since Schmidt had not agreed to the partition, he was still the owner of the entire tract of land and could not be divested of his ownership rights without his consent. The court also noted that the partition would have been valid if Schmidt had consented to it.
