CASES OF UNIFORM GRATUITY DISMISSED BY THE

COURT OF CLAIMS

[blocks in formation]

INDEX DIGEST

APPROPRIATIONS.

See Pay of Clerk, Conference Minority, House of Representatives;

Taxes, XXVIII.
ARMY PAY.

Plaintiff having, at the time of his honorable discharge from

the Army at Coblenz, Germany, June 12, 1920, elected to receive
mileage from the place of discharge to his bona fide residence,
he is entitled to the same under the act of February 28, 1919.

Corkery, 524.

See also Special Jurisdiction.
ASSIGNMENTS.

A corporation of the State of Wisconsin, within three years

before commencing suit in the Court of Claims, was dissolved
by resolution of its stockholders and a “liquidator” appointed
to whom the assets were turned over with directions to pay
the corporate debts and taxes and to distribute the balance.
The statutes of Wisconsin continue the existence of a corpora-
tion for purposes of liquidation three years after resolution
dissolving it. After the three years had expired the liquidator
applied for leave and was allowed to continue suit. Held,
that a liquidator, so appointed and acting, is to be regarded
as an assignee of the corporation, suing for the use of the
creditors and stockholders thereof, and entitled to judgment

accordingly. Oberndorfer, liquidator, 376.

See also Practice and Procedure.
AUTHORITY OF PUBLIC OFFICERS.

The courts will assume that an officer, in the performance of an

official act, not only took all necessary preliminary steps but
acted within the circumference of his authority. There is a
presumption in favor of the legality of his official act which
must be overcome by satisfactory proof that the officer exceeded

his powers. Lamport Mfg. Supply Co., 579.
