Compagnie Internationale v. Miller, 266 U.S. 473 (1925)
Compagnie Internationale de Produits Alimentaires, S.A. v. Miller
Argued November 25, 1924
Decided January 5, 1925
266 U.S. 473
APPEAL FROM THE COURT OF APPEALS
OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Decided upon the authority of Behn, Meyer & Co. v. Miller, ante, p. 266 U. S. 457.
54 App.D.C. 255 reversed.
Appeal from a decree of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia affirming a decree of the Supreme Court of the District which dismissed, on motion, appellant's bill against the Alien Property Custodian and the Treasurer of the United States to recover the proceeds of certain stock belonging to the appellant, a neutral corporation, and which was seized by the Custodian under color of the Trading with the Enemy Act.
MR. JUSTICE McREYNOLDS delivered the opinion of the Court.
The court below decided this cause upon authority of its opinion in Behn, Meyer & Co., Limited v. Thomas W. Miller, 296 F. 1002, which, upon appeal, became No. 343 on our docket. The decree therein has been reversed for reasons stated in the opinion just announced. The two causes present the same issues. Consequently the challenged decree herein also must be reversed, and the cause remanded for further proceedings in conformity with our conclusions.
