Swift & Co. v. Hoover, 242 U.S. 107 (1916)
Swift & Co. v. Hoover
Submitted November 14, 1916
Decided December 4, 1916
242 U.S. 107
A decree of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia refusing to adjudicate defendant a bankrupt is not directly reviewable in this Court.
Under § 24 of the Bankruptcy Act and § 252 of the Judicial Code, only controversies arising in bankruptcy proceedings, and not the steps taken in the proceedings themselves, afford basis for direct appeal to this Court from the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia.
Quaere whether Congress has omitted to provide for appellate review of bankruptcy adjudications of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia.
The case is stated in the opinion.
