Dismissal of an action instituted in good faith is a valuable consideration;1 as discontinuance of attachment proceedings,2 or a suit contesting a will,3 or the dismissal of a prosecution for removing goods of a debtor to prevent a levy.4 Thus such dismissal by A is consideration for B's promise to pay A's attorney's fees,5 or costs,6 or money.7 The act of a creditor in dismissing proceedings in involuntary bankruptcy against a debtor is consideration for the promise of a third person to give his note to such creditor for such debt.8
