Sampayo v. Bank of Nova Scotia, 313 U.S. 270 (1941)

Sampayo v. Bank of Nova Scotia

No. 90

Submitted April 10, 1941

Decided May 12, 1941

313 U.S. 270


The status of "farmer" for the purpose of proceedings under § 75 of the Bankruptcy Act, is determined by the definition of that term in § 75(r), not by the definition in § 1(17), which relate to other sections. Pp. 313 U. S. 271, 313 U. S. 274.

This results not only from the language of § 75(r), but also from the legislative history.

109 F.2d 743, 750, reversed.

Certiorari, 311 U.S. 623, to review the affirmance of an order of the District Court which dismissed a proceeding under § 75 of the Bankruptcy Act on the ground that the petitioner was not a "farmer."
