Denied June 4, 1923

Opinion rendered June 11, 1923

262 U.S. 640


Where lower federal courts have entertained suit of which they had no jurisdiction as federal courts, and appointed receivers, the jurisdiction of this Court, on appeal, is to correct their errors in assuming jurisdiction and granting relief; it has no jurisdiction, in ordering the suits dismissed, to allow compensation, expenses, and counsel fees to the receivers, or to direct a party to take proceedings in a state court having jurisdiction of the property in question for the purpose of protecting creditors who filed their claims in the federal court. P. 262 U. S. 641.

Motion denied.

Motion to modify the decrees rendered by this Court pursuant to its decision of these cases, ante, 262 U. S. 77.
