U.S. Supreme Court

Schweer v. Brown, 195 U.S. 171 (1904)

Schweer v. Brown

No. 162

Submitted October 31, 1904

Decided November 7, 1904

195 U.S. 171


Where the question is whether a district court sitting in bankruptcy could proceed in a summary way in the particular instance, the jurisdiction of the United States court as such is not in question, and § 5 of the Judiciary Act of March 3, 1891, has no application.

Mueller v. Nugent, 184 U. S. 1; Louisville Trust Co. v. Comingor, 184 U. S. 18, approved on the point that the bankruptcy court has jurisdiction to determine in the first instance whether a summary proceeding can be maintained. If it errs in so proceeding the remedy is under § 24b of the Bankruptcy Law.
