Melrose Distillers, Inc. v. United States

No. 404

Argued March 30, 1959

Decided April 20, 1959

359 U.S. 271

Syllabus

Petitioners, two Maryland corporations and a Delaware corporation, were indicted in a Federal District Court for restraining trade and conspiring and attempting to monopolize commerce in violation of §§ 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act. They were dissolved under their respective state statutes, and moved to dismiss the indictment on the ground that their dissolution abated the proceeding.

Held: under the applicable Maryland and Delaware statutes, their corporate lives were sufficiently continued to make them "existing" corporations within the meaning of § 8 of the Sherman Act, so that the proceeding did not abate. Pp. 359 U. S. 271-274.

258 F.2d 726 affirmed.
