ASSIGNMENT is the transfer, or passing over, of one’s right, interest and ownership, in any particular estate, property or thing, to another; which may be done in some instances by a simple delivery of the property, or by a verbal declaration to that effect, accompanied by the Intention between the parties, that the one parts with the thing or property, and that the other receives it and becomes the owner thereof. In general, however, this act is performed by delivering a writing showing the intention of the parties, which writing is itself called an assignment. An assignment may be a gift, a sale, or a temporary or conditional transfer of ownership or title; and may be made of lands, inheritances, goods, liens, claims, suits, rights—in short, any thing that is property. If it be necessary to bring suit upon a claim or other matter which has been assigned or sold, such suit must be brought in the name of the assignee, as the plaintiff. The statutes of this, state, and of Oregon and Washington, are uniform, in requiring every action to be prosecuted in the name of the real party in interest, with some exceptions, such as in certain cases of trusts.' Every assignment, in writing or otherwise, of any estate or interest in lands, or in goods in action, or of any rents or profits issuing therefrom, made with intent to hinder, delay or defraud creditors or other persons of their lawful suits, damages, forfeit. ureş, debts or demands, is void.” Every assignment, verbal or written, of goods, chattels, or things in action, made in trust for the use of the person making
