United States Supreme Court


No. 572

Argued: Decided: January 26, 1959

Certiorari granted.

Judgment vacated and cause remanded for reconsideration in light of Idaho property law.

Reported below: 256 F.2d 871.

Burton K. Wheeler and Robert G. Seaks for petitioner.

Solicitor General Rankin, Assistant Attorney General Townsend, George B. Searls and Irwin A. Seibel for respondent.


The petition for writ of certiorari is granted. The judgment of the Court of Appeals is vacated, and the cause is remanded to it, to consider whether, under the law of property of Idaho, it was possible, after the time of the making of the conveyance, for any person other than the named beneficiaries of the trust to acquire a property interest in it (other than through a named beneficiary), and, in the light of its determination as to this, to reconsider its holding that respondent was entitled to all the trust funds remaining in the hands of the trustee.
