Hahn v. United States, 107 U.S. 402 (1883)

Hahn v. United States

April 9, 1883

107 U.S. 402


A. was surveyor of customs from June 13, 1872, to May, 1876 at Troy, N.Y. which was a port of delivery, but not of entry, in the collection district of the City of New York. At various times during the period from June 13, 1872, to June 22, 1874, there was a surveyor of customs at the port of New York, which was a port of entry, and there were surveyors of customs at two other ports in that district, which were ports of delivery and not ports of entry. In accordance with the uniform practice of the Treasury Department, under sec. 1 of the Act of March 2, 1867, c. 188, repealed by sec. 2 of the Act of June 22, 1874, c. 391, the Secretary of the Treasury distributed to the collector, naval officer, and surveyor at the port of New York, as such officers, and not as informers or seizing officers, one-fourth part of the proceeds of the fines, penalties, and forfeitures incurred at the port of New York between June 13, 1872, and June 22, 1874. A. made no question in regard to this practice until March, 1874, and when informed, in June of that year, that the Department adhered to its construction of the act, he made no further complaint until March, 1877. He sued the United States in the Court of Claims in May, 1877, claiming that under said first section he was entitled to share in said one-fourth equally with the collector and the naval officer at the port of New York, and all the surveyors in the district. The court rejected the claim. Held that the judgment was not erroneous.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
