Injunction Against Receiver of Oneida Silverware Mfg. Co. Dissolved
Oneida, N. Y., May 1.—Supreme Court Justice Scripture has vacated the temporary injunction obtained recently by Sidney W. Moore, of Oneida, against Charles A. Stringer, of Munnsville, as the receiver of the Oneida Silverware Mfg. Co. The injunction restrained the sale of the company’s property at the factory in Wilson St., this city, and ordered that cause be shown why the order of sale should not be modified so as to provide that the sale should not be for an amount less than enough to pay all of the company’s liabilities.
Justice George F. Lyon, one of the Justices of the Supreme Court for the Sixth district, granted the order of sale upon the application of a majority of the directors of the company. The injunction order was obtained from Justice Scripture of the Fifth district, and in Special term at Rome, April 27, the point was raised that the Fifth district Justice had no jurisdiction to interfere with the proceedings directed by the Sixth district Justice. Justice Scripture concluded that he had no jurisdiction to grant the relief prayed for and dismissed the injunction.
