Land Interest in land. The claimant issued proceedings, claiming he had a beneficial interest in a property or was entitled to be repaid a loan. The defendant contended that the claimant had no standing to pursue the claim due to his bankruptcy. The Chancery Division, in dismissing the claim, held that the claimant lacked standing, as the property had come under the control of the official receiver and vested in the claimant's trustee in bankruptcy upon the latter's appointment.
