  • Black's Law Dictionary: 2nd Edition

    To hinder and delay is to do something which is an attempt to defraud, rather than a successful fraud; to put some obstacle in the path or interpose some time, unjustifiably, before the creditor can realize what is owed out of his debtor's property. See Walker v. Sayers, 5 Bush (Ky.). 582 ; Burdick v. Post, 12 Barb. (N. Y.) 186; Crow v. Beardsley, 68 Mo. 439; Burnham v. Brennan, 42 N. Y. Super. Ct 63.
