Argued March 25, 1887

Decided April 4, 1887

121 U.S. 118


In a suit in equity to enforce trust deeds, a receiver appointed to receive rents and to lease unrented property may apply to the court for directions in regard to the expenditure of funds in his hands as receiver.

The reference of a suit in equity by the Special Term of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia to the General Term for hearing in the first instance does not deprive the Special Term of authority to afterwards hear such application of the receiver, especially when the General Term has made an order granting leave to the receiver to apply to the Special Term for instructions.

Such an application may be made by the receiver to the Special Term even chanrobles.com-red
