UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
May 1, 1951
McGRATH, Atty. Gen. NAUEN v. McGRATH, Atty. Gen. VORT et al. v. McGRATH, Atty. Gen
The opinion of the court was delivered by: BAILEY
The motion of the plaintiffs to amend the findings of fact of the Court will be overruled.
The defendant seeks to have the judgment against the plaintiffs in the cross-complaint to include interest on the dividends received by the plaintiffs. The judgment will include interest at 4% per annum on the amount of those dividends from the date of the vesting of the dividends. Inasmuch as the cross plaintiff seeks equity it should do equity and the amount of the judgment versus the cross defendant's will be reduced by whatever amount of the federal income taxes paid by the plaintiffs was increased by the income tax they paid on the stock. If the parties cannot agree on this amount, the cause will be referred to the Auditor to take testimony and report his findings to the Court.
Each party will pay one-half of the costs in this case, including the costs of the depositions as set out in the affidavit of Mr. Falloon, but the plaintiffs will not be charged with any part of the transportation cost of the witness Schlotterer, either in Germany or in the United States, nor his head tax or his subsistence costs. The cost of the Reporter's transcript will not be taxed as part of the costs.
I have amended my opinion, D.C., 99 F.Supp. 57, filed on April 11, 1951 by certain changes on the face of it and also by re-writing pages 3, 6, 8, and 11.
