U.S. Supreme Court

Matter of Harris, 221 U.S. 274 (1911)

Matter of Harris

No. 165

Argued April 28, 1911

Decided May 15, 1911

221 U.S. 274


The right under the Fifth Amendment not to be compelled to be a witness against oneself is not a right to appropriate property that may tell one's story.

A bankrupt is not deprived of his constitutional right not to testify against himself by an order requiring him to surrender his books to the duly authorized receiver. Counselman v. Hitchcock, 142 U. S. 547, distinguished.

Under § 2 of the Act of 1898, where the bankruptcy court can enforce title against the bankrupt in favor of the trustee, it can enforce possession ad interim in favor of the receiver, and so held as to books of the bankrupt. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
