U.S. Supreme Court

Cross v. United States, 242 U.S. 4 (1916)

Cross v. United States

No. 78

Submitted October 23, 1916

Decided November 13, 1916

242 U.S. 4


Under the Naturalization Act of June 29, 1906, 34 Stat. 596, c. 3592, fees may not rightfully be charged against the United States by a clerk of a federal court for making triplicate copies of declarations of intention, or for attaching the seal of the court thereto, pursuant to the direction of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalization. The Naturalization Act, by the affirmative provisions of §§ 12 and 13 defining duties and fees, and by the express prohibition against additional charges contained in § 21, precludes any right of the clerk which might otherwise exist under Revised Statutes, § 828, to charge fees against the United States for the services here in question.

50 Ct.Clms. 413 affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
