Meadows v. Irving Trust Co.

No. 151

Argued December 15, 16, 1936

Decided January 4, 1937

299 U.S. 464

Syllabus

1. Landlord's claim for injury due to rejection of lease by trustee in bankruptcy, preserved by saving clause limiting release. Schwartz v. Irvin Trust Co., ante p. 299 U. S. 456. P. 299 U. S. 465.

2. Although the claim of a landlord, in reorganization proceedings under § 77B of the Bankruptcy Act, for injury due to the trustee's rejection of the lease, is not barred by the surrender of the premises by the trustee, the acceptance thereof by the landlord and the assignment of the lease to a new tenant nominated by the landlord, no such claim exists where, by the terms of the lease itself, all liability of the lessee under it was terminated by the assignment and its accompaniments. P. 299 U. S. 466.

83 F.2d 207 affirmed.

Certiorari to review a judgment of the Circuit Court of Appeals which affirmed an order of the District Court, rejecting part of a claim of a landlord for injury due to rejection of the lease by the trustee in bankruptcy.
