Leeds and Lippincott Co. v. United States.

April 5, 1960

LEEDS AND LIPPINCOTT COMPANY, APPELLANT
v.
UNITED STATES.



Before McLAUGHLIN, KALODNER and HASTIE, Circuit Judges.

Opinion of the Court

Per Curiam: Judge Madden in the District Court held that the transfer of properties and lease back arrangement, here involved, between the taxpayer and the insurance company, was in substance a mortgage, not a sale and therefore taxpayer was not entitled to receive credit for a capital loss.

Under the particular facts and the law of the case (see Helvering v. Lazarus, 308 U.S. 252 (1939) ) we must agree.

The judgment of the District Court will be affirmed.
