U.S. Supreme Court
Rogers v. Calumet National Bank, 358 U.S. 331 (1959)
Rogers v. Calumet National Bank
Decided January 26, 1959
358 U.S. 331
ON PETITION FOR WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE
APPELLATE COURT OF INDIANA
A state court is without power to review the discretion exercised by the Attorney General of the United States under federal law in connection with the issuance of a vesting order under the Trading with the Enemy Act.
128 Ind.App. 628, 149 N.E.2d 214, reversed and cause remanded.
The petition for writ of certiorari is granted. We are of the view that, under Silesian-American Corp. v. Markham, 156 F.2d 793, 796, affirmed, 332 U. S. 469, a state court is without power to review the discretion exercised by the Attorney General of the United States under federal law. The judgment is therefore reversed, and the cause remanded to the Appellate Court of Indiana. On remand, the Indiana courts are, of course, free to consider other questions presented by this record in light of General License 94, 12 Fed.Reg. 1457, as it may have affected the definition of "national" in Executive Order 9095, 7 Fed.Reg. 1971, as amended, and Executive Order 8389, 5 Fed.Reg. 1400. See GMO. Niehaus & Co. v. United States, 139 Ct.Cl. 605, 153 F.Supp. 428.
