What was the rule of decision as to which a conflict existed?



The rule of decision as to which a conflict existed was whether a preexisting
debt constituted valuable consideration applicable to negotiable instruments;
and whether this had to be decided under applicable New York state law, or
whether the federal court was free to interpret the question according to its
own principles established by general commercial law.
