The plaintiff entered into an agreement whereby it was to receive all the assets of an insolvent bank as consideration for the assumption of certain specified liabilities. Among the assets was a note upon which the plaintiff is now suing a prior indorser. Although it was the intention of the defendant to indorse as agent in accordance with the request of the insolvent bank, on the face of his endorsement he indorsed individually. Held, that since the plaintiff was not a holder in due course, the note was subject to the same defenses in the hands of the plaintiff as it was in the hands of the insolvent bank. Baach v. Bank of Pocahontas (Va. 1931) 160 S.E. 68.
