City of Lincoln v. Ricketts

No. 348

Argued February 5, 1936

Decided March 2, 1936

297 U.S. 373


Section 64(b)(7) of the Bankruptcy Act gives priority to

"debt owing to any person who, by the laws of the States or the United States, is entitled to priority: Provided, That the term 'person' as used in this section shall include corporations, the United States, and the several States and Territories of the United States."

Held that a municipality is a "corporation" and hence a "person" within the meaning of this provision if entitled to priority by the law of its State. Pp. 297 U. S. 374, 297 U. S. 377.

77 F.2d 425 reversed.

Certiorari, 296 U.S. 566, to review a judgment denying the City's claim of preference in a bankruptcy case.
