Historical and Revision Notes

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed. § 446 (Mar. 3, 1911, ch. 231, § 304, as added Aug. 7, 1939, ch. 501, § 1,53 Stat. 1223).
This section contains the last clause of section 446(1) of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed.
A similar provision with respect to the Attorney General’s authority over United States attorneys and their assistants, and United States marshals and their deputies was omitted as unnecessary since there is nothing in this chapter that could affect such authority of the Attorney General.
For other provisions of section 446 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., see section 604 of this title.
