An insolvent debtor made a voluntary assignment of. all his property to the defendants for the benefit of his creditors. The plaintiff, a nonassenting creditor, brought garnishment proceedings against the defendants, contending that the state statute governing general assignments had been suspended by the National Bankruptcy Act. The Wisconsin Supreme Court was of the opinion that only that portion of the Act which provides for a discharge of the assignor from his debts was suspended. On appeal to the United-States Supreme Court the decision was affirmed. Pobreslo v. Joseph M. Boyd Co., 287 U. S. 518, 53 Sup. Ct. 262, 77 L. ed. 343 (1933).
