Classification 93: Ascertaining Financial Ability

This classification was established in July 1934, when the Bureau assumed the responsibility for examining judicial offices. The Department of Justice then advised the Bureau that examiners of judicial offices also assisted U.S. Attorneys in ascertaining the financial ability of debtors; the Bureau agreed to assume the additional function. In late 1936 the Bureau was relieved of the responsibility for examining judicial offices but did not succeed in removing itself from the financial investigations. Originally the cases had been filed by court docket number but in 1939 the Executive Conference ordered the use of a case file system.
