The Plaintiff had, while the disputes were afoot, lodged a police report alleging that he had been cheated. As part of the compromise the Plaintiff agreed to withdraw the charges set out in the Police Report.

The Court held that the agreement in question was one that stifled a prosecution and was therefore illegal.
