Meaning of A Heard v. Skinner

(36 Ch. D. 145). ” Delay defeats equities.” The plaintiff A, of full age, was introduced by her spiritual adviser to the defendant S, the superior of a sisterhood. A became a professed member of the society in 1871. She left in 1879. During that time she made over 5,000 to S for the purposes of the society. In 1885 she claimed the return of the money. Held, that although no deception, unfair advantage or pressure other than that of the rules or vows had been brought to bear, the gift could have been set aside on the ground of undue influence, but by the plaintiff’s conduct after she was free from all influence, she had confirmed the gift, and lapse of time barred any relief
