United States v. Saunders, 120 U.S. 126 (1887)
United States v. Saunders
Submitted January 7, 1887
Decided January 24, 1887
120 U.S. 126
A clerk in the office of the President of the United States, who is also appointed to be the clerk of a committee of Congress and who performs the duties of both positions, is entitled to receive the compensation appropriated and allowed by law for each.
Sections 1763, 1764, and 1765 of the Revised Statutes have no application to the case of two distinct offices, places, or employments, each with its own duties and compensation, but both held by one person at the same time.
This was a suit to recover salary withheld. The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
