Lickbarrow And Another v Mason And Others: 9 Nov 1787

The consignor may stop goods in transit before they get into the hands of the consignee, in case of the insolvency of the consignee : but if the consignee assign the bills of lading to a third person for a valuable consideration, the right of the consignor as against such assignee is divested. There is no distinction between a bill of lading iridorsed in blank, and an indorsement to a particular person.
