180 years ago today - Feb 8, 1837

Samuel D. Rounds swears out a writ against Joseph Smith, Sidney Rigdon, and others, charging them with the civil action of banking without legal authority. This case is brought to court on March 24, 1837, and tried before a jury in October 1837. Sidney and Joseph are fined $1000 each, but appeal the case.
