Ex Parte Fuller


Motion for stay submitted April 27, 1923

262 U.S. 91


One who becomes a bankrupt has no right, under the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the Constitution, to resist delivery of his books and papers to the trustee in bankruptcy or affix conditions as to their use upon the ground that they may be used to incriminate him. P. 262 U. S. 93.

Application denied.

This was an application, made here to stay, pending appeal, two orders of the district court requiring a receiver in bankruptcy and the bankrupts and their attorneys to turn over certain books and papers to the trustee in bankruptcy.
