Petition #20884715


Justin Marc Rideau, of New Orleans, seeks damages from Mr. and Mrs. Jean Jacques Haydel. Rideau represents that Haydel, a resident of the parish of St. John the Baptist, “received, Harboured & concealed” his two slaves, Aimée and her daughter Chouchoute, from the beginning of October 1844 through the end of August 1845, without his consent or knowledge. Rideau therefore prays for an order directing the Haydels to pay him $290 in damages for illegally holding his property, plus costs of suit. He also asks that "commissions be granted" directing the Justice of the Peace to assemble witnesses and to take their testimony and their answers to interrogatories.

Result: Dismissed.
