Emil v. Hanley, 318 U.S. 515 (1943)
Emil v. Hanley
Argued February 12, 1943
Decided March 15, 1943
318 U.S. 515
1. Section 2(a) (21) of the Bankruptcy Act, which gives to the bankruptcy court the power to require "receivers or trustees appointed in proceedings not under this Act" within four months of bankruptcy (1) "to deliver the property in their possession or under their control to the receiver or trustee appointed under this Act," and (2) "to account to the court for the disposition by them of the property" of the bankrupt, held inapplicable in straight bankruptcy proceedings to a receiver appointed by a state court (within four months
of bankruptcy) as an incident to enforcement of a valid mortgage lien. P. 318 U. S. 519.
2. Section 69(d) of the Bankruptcy Act, making a "receiver or trustee, not appointed under this Act, of any of the property" of the bankrupt "accountable" to the bankruptcy court for "any action taken by him subsequent to the filing of such bankruptcy petition," applies only where bankruptcy supersedes the prior proceedings. P. 318 U. S. 522.
130 F.2d 369 affirmed.
Certiorari, 317 U.S. 621, to review the affirmance of an order of the bankruptcy court, 43 F.Supp. 128, denying an application for an order requiring a state court receiver to file his account in the bankruptcy court.
