Gasquet v. Fenner, 247 U.S. 16 (1918)

Gasquet v. Fenner

No. 261

Argued April 24, 1918

Decided May 6, 1918

247 U.S. 16


When the laws of a state provide that final settlement of an estate in the probate court on behalf of a person under interdiction can only be had upon proceedings there setting aside the interdiction or appointing a curator, a decree of a court of another state purporting to establish his sanity notwithstanding such interdiction will not, by virtue of the full faith and credit clause of the Constitution, operate upon the interdiction directly, but, at most, would be conclusive in such probate proceedings.

In such case, the district court, sitting in the state where the estate is being administered, cannot dispense with such proceedings in the local probate court and require a settlement from the executors.

235 F.9d 7 affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
