ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

1. The rule that a receiver cannot be sued without leave of the court of equity which appointed him applies to suit against him on a money demand or for damages, as well as to those the object of which is to recover property which he holds by order of that court.

2. The fact that by such order he is in possession of a railroad and engaged in the business of a common carrier thereon does not so take his case out of the rule as that an action will lie against him for an injury caused by his negligence or that of his servants in conducting that business.
