McKenna v. Simpson
Submitted January 4, 1889
Decided March 5, 1889
129 U.S. 506
ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT
OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE
A state court has jurisdiction of an action brought by an assignee in bankruptcy to set aside, as made to defraud creditors, conveyances made by the bankrupt before the bankruptcy.
When an assignee in bankruptcy resorts to a state court to set aside a conveyance by the bankrupt as made to defraud creditors, and no question is raised there as to his power under the acts of Congress or as to the rights vested in him as assignee, the judgment of the state court is subject to review here in the same manner and to the same extent as
proceedings of a similar character by a creditor to set aside conveyances in fraud of his rights by a debtor.
