U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Cohn, 270 U.S. 339 (1926)

United States v. Cohn

No. 130

Submitted January 13, 1926

Decided March 1, 1926

270 U.S. 339


1. Obtaining the possession of nondutiable goods from a collector is not obtaining the approval of a "claim upon or against" the government within the meaning of § 65 of the Penal Code, as amended October 23, 1918. P. 270 U. S. 345.

2. Neither is the wrongful obtaining of such goods from a collector a "defrauding" of the government within the meeting of this section, since it deals with defrauding only in the primary sense of cheating out of property or money, therein differing from § 37, which extends to conspiracies to defraud in the secondary sense of obstructing governmental functions by fraudulent means. P. 270 U. S. 346.
