Culver v. United States
Submitted April 12, 1926
Decided May 24, 1926
271 U.S. 315
After issuance by the President of Army Regulation 1269 1/2, an officer of flying status assigned to the War College, as a student, by order of the Secretary of War, was required by that regulation to participate regularly and frequently in aerial flights, and was therefore entitled to extra pay under § 13a of the Army Reorganization Act; but prior to the date of that regulation it was otherwise, since the officer, even though he took regular flights, was not required to do so, being relieved from the Air Service regulation in that regard by the order of the Secretary assigning him to the War College.
60 Ct.Cls. 825 reversed.
Certiorari to a judgment of the Court of Claims dismissing a petition for extra pay.
