Same - Priority Between Assignees

It is held in England that "equitable titles have priority according to the priority of notice; " 84 that the successive assignees of an obligation rank as to their title according to the dates at which they gave notice to the party to be charged. This doctrine is also recognized by the courts of some of our states, and by the supreme court of the United States.88 The courts of many of the states, on the other hand, hold that equitable titles have priority, not according to the priority of notice, but according to priority in time of assignment, on the ground that as between assignor and assignee the assignment is complete without any notice to the debtor, and that a purchaser of a chose in action must always abide by the case of the person from whom he buys.88
