Capt. Isaac Hull, who commanded the U.S.S. Constitution under fire, during the War of 1812, was later accused of financial irregularities while serving as Commander of the Boston Navy Yard. His accuser, lieut. Joel Abbott was charged with libel by C apt. David Porter. (Capt. Porter had been sent by the U.S. Navy to investigate the allegations against Hull. In the course of his investigations, Porter realized that Hull was innocent of the charges and moved forward with a libel suit against Abbot t.) Abbott was, in fact, found guilty of defaming Hull's character and was suspended from service for two years.
