Wall v. Cox
Submitted April 16, 1901
Decided April 29, 1901
181 U.S. 244
Under the Bankrupt Act of 1898, the district court of the United States
in which proceedings in bankruptcy are pending has no jurisdiction, unless by consent of the defendants, of a bill in equity by the trustee in bankruptcy against persons to whom the bankrupt, before the proceedings in bankruptcy, made a sale and conveyance of property which the plaintiff seeks to set aside as fraudulent as against creditors, but which the defendants assert to have been made in good faith and to have vested title in them.
The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.
