Summary
Hearing before the Subcom No. 2 to consider H.R. 12343, to authorize the Department of Treasury to reimburse Lena S. Tillman for financial losses incurred by her late husband, James A. Tillman, for alleged dishonor of a check drawn by him on Russo-Asiatic Bank, a Soviet nationalized corporation, that resulted in New York State Supreme Court Sept. 1935 decision validating a 1927 judgment of Tillman's attachment lien on Russo-Asiatic's assets in Guaranty Trust Co., assets which were later seized in 1948 by the U.S. Government following court decision in Steingut v. Guaranty Trust Co. lawsuit brought under the Nov. 1933 Litvinov Assignment between the U.S. and Soviet Union.
Bill responds to Tillman claim that the 1927 judgement on attachment pre-dates and exempts from agreements made between the U.S. and Soviet Union in the Litvinov Agreement, under which the U.S. formally recognized the Soviet Union in exchange for Soviet Union assignment to the U.S. of all of its assets and the assets of its nationals located in the U.S. for the benefit of American nationals who had claims against the Soviet Union or its nationals, and under which both countries agreed not to make any claims to judgments rendered after Nov. 1933 by American courts related to property, rights, or interest in which the Soviet Union or its nationals may have claimed an interest.
