U.S. Supreme Court

In re Michael, 326 U.S. 224 (1945)

In re Michael

No. 38

Argued October 11, 12, 1945

Decided November 5, 1945

326 U.S. 224


1. A witness may not be punished for contempt under § 268 of the Judicial Code for perjury alone. Clark v. United States, 289 U. S. 1, distinguished. P. 326 U. S. 228.

2. Nor may a trustee in bankruptcy be adjudged guilty of contempt under § 268 of the Judicial Code for misbehavior as an officer of the court in an official transaction, solely on the ground that he testified falsely before a Grand Jury in the course of a general investigation of frauds against the United States, since such testimony is not an "official transaction" as trustee. P. 326 U. S. 229.

146 F.2d 627 reversed.

Certiorari, 324 U.S. 837, to review the affirmance of an order upon an adjudication of contempt. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
