Evelyn Mildred Gliem, Administratrix, Estate of Rhea I. Farrell, Deceased, Appellant v. District of Columbia, Appellee, 289 F.2d 784 (D.C. Cir. 1961)

Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 289 F.2d 784 (D.C. Cir. 1961) Argued April 5, 1961
Decided April 13, 1961
Petition for Rehearing En Banc Denied May 8, 1961

Mr. George C. Dreos, Washington, D. C., for appellant.

Mr. John R. Hess, Asst. Corporation Counsel for the District of Columbia, with whom Messrs. Chester H. Gray, Corporation Counsel, Milton D. Korman, Principal Asst. Corporation Counsel, and Hubert B. Pair, Asst. Corporation Counsel, were on the brief, for appellee.

Before WILBUR K. MILLER, Chief Judge, and PRETTYMAN and BURGER, Circuit Judges.


The administratrix sought a commission of $298.24, and a fee of $610.05 for her attorney, for the administration of gross assets of $2,982.44. The settlement of the estate seems to have presented little difficulty. From a District Court order limiting the aggregate of commission and attorney's fee to ten per cent of the gross estate, the administratrix appeals.

We find no error.
