Add. Defs: Jeptha Osborne; Thomas Ballard, admr of Washington Ballard, dec; John Stanfield. Edwards bought land from Porter, paying cash & note for the balance. Porter owed money to Robert Boyd & to Ocoee Bank. Boyd sued to set aside Porter's land sale. Porter assigned Edwards' note to def Osborne, who assigned it to Stanfield. Edwards says both assignments done fraudulently to prevent attachment of the note. Since he no longer has land he bought from Porter, Edwards seeks relief from note enforcement.
