From The New York Times, September 21, 1929, page 8.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 30 (AP) – Upholding the opinion of a lower court in New Jersey, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals here today, in a decision written by Judge J. Warren Davis, frustrated an attempt of the parent organization of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan to enrich its treasury by confiscating the share of the Point Pleasant (N.J.) Klan, No. 9, in a $1,000,000 piece of Monmouth County (N.J.) real estate. The Point Pleasant Klan had been expelled from the parent order.
Judge Davis and his associates, Judges Joseph Buffington and Victor B. Woolley upheld Judge Joseph L. Bodine of the Court of Errors and Appeals of New Jersey in his dismissal of a receivership suit brought by the parent organization against the Monmouth Pleasure Club, Inc., whose members are composed of Klansmen, for the purpose of setting aside the interest of the Point Pleasant Klan in the property and turning it over to the parent body.
