Historical and Revision Notes

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., § 244 (Mar. 3, 1911, ch. 231, § 139,36 Stat. 1136).
The provision in section 244 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., that the bailiff should serve 4 years unless sooner removed by the court for cause, was changed by omitting the 4-year tenure and removal “for cause” requirement. As revised this section conforms with sections relating to the similar court officers.
Term “chief messenger” in section 244 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., was changed to “messenger” as the court has but one messenger.
A provision of section 244 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., providing for appointment of a clerk and assistant is incorporated in section 791 of this title, and a provision thereof, relating to powers and duties of the clerk, his deputies and assistants, is incorporated in section 956 of this title.
The second paragraph was added to conform with sections 713, 755, and 834 of this title.
Changes were made in phraseology.
