Decided January 27, 1955

Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, Edward M. Curran, District Judge.

Mr. Milford F. Schwartz, Washington, D. C., with whom Mr. Burton J. Reiner, Washington, D. C., was on the brief, for appellants.

Mr. Martin J. McNamara, Jr., Washington, D. C., pro se.

Before EDGERTON, PRETTYMAN and FAHY, Circuit Judges.


Appellants complain that the District Court awarded a fee of $1,500 to a guardian ad litem who asked only for $800. He had been appointed to protect the interest of an incompetent in an estate of some $400,000. We find no error or abuse of discretion.
