McCloskey v. McGrath, 341 U.S. 475 (1951)
McCloskey v. McGrath
Argued February 28, 1951
Decided May 28, 1951
341 U.S. 475
Petitioner is the sheriff who levied the attachments against accounts of German nationals "frozen" under Executive Orders Nos. 8785 and 8389, which were involved in the two preceding decisions (Zittman. v. McGrath, ante pp. 341 U. S. 446, 341 U. S. 471). His claim for his fees was denied by the courts below incidentally to their denial of the rights asserted by the attaching creditors.
Held: the judgment is reversed insofar as the fees of the sheriff relate to the accounts to which the Custodian was held not entitled to possession, and affirmed insofar as they relate to the accounts to which the Custodian was held entitled to possession -- without prejudice to certain rights of the sheriff as indicated in the opinion. Pp. 475-478.
182 F.2d 349, affirmed in part and reversed in part.
