U.S. Supreme Court

Matter of Riggs, 214 U.S. 9 (1909)

In re Mary Hatch Riggs

No. 11, Original

Argued April 12, 1909

Decided May 17, 1909

214 U.S. 9


Mandamus is not a proper substitute for a writ of error.

Where the bankruptcy court, in adjudicating a corporation a bankrupt, is called upon to decide, and does decide, a question of fact, or of mixed law and fact, that adjudication cannot be reviewed by proceedings in mandamus. In re Pollitz, 206 U. S. 323; In re Winn, 213 U. S. 458.

Where the evidence sustaining an application for an adjudication in bankruptcy is not disclosed, this Court will not assume that it was not sufficient.

Mandamus to the bankruptcy court to dismiss proceedings in bankruptcy against a corporation because the petition failed to show that the principal business of the bankrupt was trading, printing, publishing, mining, manufacturing or a mercantile pursuit, refused.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
