Callaghan v. Reconstruction Finance Corp.

No. 539

Argued February 13, 14, 1936

Decided March 2, 1936*

297 U.S. 464


1. Where a bankruptcy proceeding is superseded by a reorganization proceeding under § 77B of the Bankruptcy Act, the allowances to trustees for services in the bankruptcy proceeding are nevertheless limited by § 48 of the Act. P. 297 U. S. 466.

P. 297 U. S. 468.

6. Section 40(c) of the Bankruptcy Act, relating to the allocation of fees allowed under § 40(a) in the event that the reference is revoked or the case is specially referred, held inapplicable. P. 297 U. S. 471.

79 F.2d 187 affirmed.

Certiorari, 296 U. S. 570, to review a judgment modifying and reversing orders of the District Court.
