Leadville Coal Company v. McCreery
Argued and submitted October 29, 1891
Decided November 9, 1891
141 U.S. 475
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
When, in pursuance of the jurisdiction conferred by the laws of the United States, a circuit court of the United States takes possession of the property of a defendant situated within a state and proceeds to final decree, determining the rights of all parties to that property, its decree is not superseded and its jurisdiction ended by reason of subsequent proceedings in the courts of the state looking to the administration of that property in accordance with the laws of the state.
A decree in such case determining the claims of all creditors and their right to share in the distribution of the property is final as to all who had notice and knowledge of the proceedings.
