U.S. Supreme Court
Glenny v. Langdon, 98 U.S. 20 (1878)
Glenny v. Langdon
98 U.S. 20
1. It is only through the instrumentality of his assignees that creditors can recover, and subject to the payment of their claims, the property which the bankrupt fraudulently transferred prior to the adjudication in bankruptcy, or which he conceals from, and fails to surrender to, his assignees.
2. Assignees of the bankrupt are subject to the control and direction of the proper court, and it may, for good cause shown, compel them to take the requisite steps for the full and complete protection of the rights of his creditors.
The facts are stated in the opinion of the Court.
