Pursuer Florence Macleod brought an action against Mr. John Nicolson, claiming that he had intromitted with the effects of her late husband Donald Nicolson (i.e., that John had taken Donald’s effects without legal authority). John admitted this intromission. However, he alleged that Macleod had likewise committed an intromission, by taking possession of an annuity from her first husband, Archibald Macqueen of Tote. According to John, Macleod had conveyed the annuity to Donald, and therefore it rightfully belonged to Donald’s heirs.
