BILLS AND NOTES - FORGED INDORSEMENT - LIABILITY OF COLLECTING BANK TO DRAWER
Plaintiff drew a check payable to V. It was stolen by H, plaintiff's employee, and delivered to a confederate who forged V's indorsement and deposited the check in the defendant bank which collected on the instrument. Plaintiff was reimbursed by H's bonding company, and then sought to recover the amount of the check from the defendant. Held, that though plaintiff could ordinarily recover the proceeds of its stolen, undelivered check from the collecting bank, recovery here would be denied because plaintiff had already been reimbursed for its loss. Washington Mechanics' Savings Bank v. District Title Co., (App. D. C. 1933) 65 F. (2d) 827.
