U.S. Supreme Court

Lesser v. Gray, 236 U.S. 70 (1915)

Lesser v. Gray

No. 110

Submitted December 9, 1914

Decided January 18, 1915

236 U.S. 70

8 Ga.App. 605 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the jurisdiction of this Court under § 237, Judicial Code, and the effect of a discharge in bankruptcy, are stated in the opinion.
