A complaint against defendant, filed in equity by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, was dismissed without costs, the lower federal court being of opinion that it had no power to impose costs upon a governmental agency. The rule of court which bears on this point says, "costs against the United States, its officers, and agencies shall be imposed only to the extent permitted by law." Held, on appeal to the circuit court of appeals, the district court did have power to assess costs against the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Reconstruction Finance Corp. v. J. G. Menihan Corp., (C. C. A. 2d, 1940) III F. (2d) 940, certiorari granted (U. S. 1940) 61 S. Ct. 26.
