U.S. Supreme Court
Earle v. Conway, 178 U.S. 456 (1900)
Earle v. Conway
Argued April 11, 1900
Decided May 14, 1900
178 U.S. 456
A receiver of a National Bank may be notified, by service upon him of an attachment issued from a state court, of the nature and extent of the interest sought to be acquired by the plaintiff in the attachment in the assets in his custody, but, for reasons stated in Earle v. Pennsylvania, ante, 178 U. S. 449, such an attachment cannot create any lien upon specific assets of the bank in the hands of the receiver, nor disturb his custody of those assets, nor prevent him from paying to the Treasurer of the United States, subject to the order of the Comptroller of the Currency, all moneys coming to his hands or realized by him as receiver from the sale of the property and assets of the bank.
The case is stated in the opinion.
