PONDER v. GRAHAM
  • FACTS: Mary Buccles (respondent, Mary Graham) married Solomon Canady about 1828 in South Carolina, later moving to Georgia. They separated and she began to cohabit with Archibald Graham in Tallahassee, Florida. In 1832, a bill was passed by the Legislative Council of the Territory of Florida, entitled “A act for the relief of Mary Canady,” which divorced Mary from Canady. (No notice was provided to Canady.) When Archibald Graham died, Mary elected to take dower, as his widow, in lieu of provisions in the will.

PONDER v. GRAHAM
  • REASONING: While the legislature may make the rules of marriage and divorce, the granting of divorces is a judicial function. The court questions precedents from other states based on Parliament’s alleged authority to grant divorces.
