Plaintiff, the receiver of an insolvent state bank, filed a claim against the estate of deceased who had been a stockholder in the bank. The estate had been closed for twelve years when the claim was filed, the bank not having become insolvent until eight years after the decedent's death. The state constitution provided double liability for the stockholders of the bank to its creditors. Defendant urged that the claim was barred by the statute of nonclaim. Held, the claim is not barred, for the constitutional liability was not a "claim or demand, contingent or absolute," against the stockholder's estate within the meaning of the statute of nonclaim. In re Wilson's Estate, (Neb. 1934) 254 N. W. 717.
