The rare printed reports of the case before the Court of Session, Second Division in Edinburgh brought by the Royal Bank of Scotland against the bankers Scott, Smith Stein & Co. It related to the effect of a bankrupt in England, and of the certificate duly allowed by the Lord Chancellor under it. The court decided that, after a commission of bankrupt has been issued in England, no sequestration against the same party will be awarded in Scotland; but that creditors in Scotland must claim under the English commission. The Court was also of the opinion that, as the commission of bankrupt carried the whole property belong to the bankrupts wherever situated, so the Lord Chancellor's certificate, allowed under it, was a complete discharge of every debt, whether English or Scotch, and therefore passed the bills of suspension without caution or consignation.
