HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 512 (R.S., Sec. 794;

Mar. 3, 1911, ch. 231, Sec. 291, 36 Stat. 1167).

Section 512 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., applied only to the

Clerk of the Supreme Court and clerks and deputies of the district

courts.

This section is applicable to the Supreme Court and to all courts

established by act of Congress.

The last sentence of section 512 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed.,

reading "The words 'So help me God.' shall be omitted in all cases

where an affirmation is admitted instead of an oath," was omitted

as unnecessary because on affirmation such words would not be

included. As revised, the section conforms with section 453 of this

title providing for the form of judicial oath.

Minor changes were made in phraseology.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Secs. 264, 523 and 525,

section 1114(a) of title 26, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Internal Revenue

Code, and District of Columbia Code, 1940 ed., Sec. 11-402 (R.S.

Sec. 799; May 28, 1896, ch. 252, Sec. 19, 29 Stat. 184; Mar. 2,

1901, ch. 814, 31 Stat. 956; Mar. 3, 1901, ch. 854, Sec. 178, 31

Stat. 1219; June 30, 1902, ch. 1329, 32 Stat. 527; Mar. 3, 1911,

504(a)(c), 56 Stat. 957; Feb. 25, 1944, ch. 63, title V, Sec. 503,

58 Stat. 72).

This section consolidates a part of section 525, sections 264 and

523 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., part of section 1114(a) of title

26, U.S.C., 1940 ed., section 11-402 of the District of Columbia

Code, 1940 ed.,

As respects acknowledgments, sections 264, 523 and 525 of title

28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., and section 11-402 of District of Columbia

Code, 1940 ed., referred only to the Court of Claims and the

District Court for the District of Columbia. However, section 555

of said title 28, before amendment in 1944, provided for the

collection of a fee by district court clerks for taking

acknowledgments. The 1944 amendment provided for the fixing of fees

by the Judicial Conference of the United States. If notaries and

other minor officials may take acknowledgments there seems to be no

reason why clerks of Federal courts and their deputies should not

have such power.

Words "Except as provided in section 591 of this title," in

section 525 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., were omitted. Under such

section 591, the provisions of such section 525 were inapplicable

to the Territory of Alaska, but a later act of June 6, 1900, ch.

786, Sec. 7, 31 Stat. 324, section 106 of title 48, U.S.C., 1940

ed., Territories and Insular Possessions, provided that clerks of

the District Court for Alaska should perform the duties required or

authorized to be performed by clerks of United States courts in

other districts.

Provisions of section 525 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., relating

to United States commissioners are incorporated in section 637 of

this title.

Provisions of section 264 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., and

section 1114(a) of title 26, U.S.C., 1940 ed., relating to

administration of oaths and acknowledgments by judges, are

incorporated in section 459 of this title. For distribution of

other provisions of such section 1114(a) of title 26, see

Distribution Table.

Changes in phraseology were made.

SENATE REVISION AMENDMENT

Those provisions of this section which related to the Tax Court

were eliminated by Senate amendment, therefore section 1114(a) of

Title 26, U.S.C., Internal Revenue Code, was not a part of the

source of this section upon final enactment. The Senate amendments

also eliminated section 1114(a) of the Internal Revenue Code from

the schedule of repeals. See 80th Congress Senate Report No. 1559.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Secs. 8, 222 and 327 (Mar.

3, 1911, ch. 231, Secs. 4, 125, 221, 36 Stat. 1087, 1132, 1153).

Section consolidates parts of sections 8, 222 and 327 of title

28, U.S.C., 1940 ed.

Sections 8, 222 and 327 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., related

only to district courts, courts of appeals and the Supreme Court,

respectively. This section applies to all Federal courts and is in

conformity with section 548 [546] of this title relating to death

of a United States marshal.

The provision for continuance of the salary of the clerk of the

Supreme Court until his successor is appointed and qualifies was

inserted to preserve existing law as declared in the unpublished

opinion of Chief Justice Taft, March 23, 1932 (filed in the

Department of Justice), with respect to a deceased clerk of the

Supreme Court.

Other provisions of sections 8, 222 and 327 of title 28, U.S.C.,

1940 ed., are incorporated in sections 671, 711, and 751 of this

title.

AMENDMENTS

1996 - Pub. L. 104-317 substituted "Vacancy in clerk position;

absence of clerk" for "Death of clerk; duties of deputies" in

section catchline and amended text generally. Prior to amendment,

text read as follows:

"Upon the death of any clerk of court, his deputy or deputies

shall execute the duties of the deceased clerk in his name until

his successor is appointed and qualifies.

"The compensation of a deceased clerk of the Supreme Court may be

paid to his personal representatives until his successor is

appointed and qualifies."

1972 - Pub. L. 92-310 struck out "and remedies against" before

"deputies" in section catchline and repealed provisions which

related to the default or misfeasance of a deputy in connection

with the bond of a deceased clerk of a Federal court.

Section consolidates parts of sections 395 and 396 of title 28,

U.S.C., 1940 ed. The remainder, relating to United States marshals

and their deputies, is incorporated in section 556 of this title.

Sections 395 and 396 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., have been

extended to include all clerks, deputies, and assistants.

The revised section substitutes as simpler and more appropriate,

the prohibition against practice of law "in any court of the United

States." (See reviser's note under section 556 of this title.)

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Based on title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Secs. 221, 244, 304 and 305

1136, 1144; June 16, 1930, ch. 494, 46 Stat. 589).

This section contains only a part of sections 221, 244, 304 and

305 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed. The other provisions of such

sections are incorporated in sections 604, 711, 831, 833, 834, 957

and 1926 of this title.

Sections 221, 244, 304 and 305 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940 ed.,

related to the clerks of the circuit courts of appeals, the Court

of Claims and the Court of Customs and Patent Appeals.

The phrase "assigned to them by the court" was substituted for

the indefinite provision of section 221 of title 28, U.S.C., 1940

ed., that the clerk of each circuit court of appeals "shall

exercise the same powers and perform the same duties * * * as are

exercised and performed by the clerk of the Supreme Court, so far

as the same may be applicable."

This section is new insofar as it affects the Clerk of the

Supreme Court and clerks of the district courts and the Customs

Court. Existing law does not prescribe the powers and duties of

those clerks. The duties of the clerk of the Customs Court have

been prescribed by the rules of such court adopted May 29, 1936.
