No. 410

Argued January 12, 1945

Decided February 5, 1945

324 U.S. 100


1. The bankruptcy court is without jurisdiction to entertain a Chapter X petition filed on behalf of a corporation (organized under state law) by stockholders who, under the local law, are without authority to institute such proceedings, even though that authority might have been obtainable under the local law by proceedings in another forum. P. 324 U. S. 106.
