Syllabus

Where, by reason of the amount involved and the diverse citizenship existing, the bankrupt might have sued the defendant in the Circuit Court of the United States, independently of the bankruptcy proceedings, under § 23 of the act of 1898, that right is preserved to the trustee, and the citizenship of the latter is wholly immaterial to the jurisdiction of the court in such a case.
