Holloway brought the original suit claiming that Griffith was unlawfully detaining his horse. Holloway employed Griffith to represent him in a separate suit and agreed to pay him by transferring a note held against Ransom Smith.

Holloway claims that Griffith took his horse to assess its value but failed to return it.
