Duryea Power Co. v. Sternbergh - 218 U.S. 299 (1910)
U.S. Supreme Court
Duryea Power Co. v. Sternbergh, 218 U.S. 299 (1910)
Duryea Power Co. v. Sternbergh
Argued November 2, 1910
Decided November 14, 1910
218 U.S. 299
Section 25b of the Bankruptcy Law only gives a right of appeal to this Court from a decision of the circuit court of appeals affirming or reversing the order of the district court, allowing or rejecting a claim when the decision is final, whether there is a certificate under § 25b, 2 or not. A decision simply allowing or disallowing a claim for voting purposes without prejudice to its subsequent presentation is not final, but provisional.
No appeal lies to this Court from a decision of the circuit court of appeals in the exercise of supervisory jurisdiction in bankruptcy matters. Nor can a petition for revision to that court be turned into an appeal.
A petition for revision opens only questions of law, while an appeal opens both fact and law.
Appeal from 161 F. 540 dismissed.
The facts, which involve the construction of certain provisions of the Bankruptcy Law and the jurisdiction of this Court of appeals from the circuit court of appeals, are stated in the opinion.
