The document describes GAO's decision on whether the appropriations under the Attorney General's control are available for the purchase of judicial robes for judges of the United States District Courts.

The appropriation "Miscellaneous Expenses" and "Supplies," act of May 28, 1924, 43 Stat. 221, does not provide specifically for judicial robes nor does GAO find any other appropriation under the Attorney General's control making such provision. It accordingly appears the Attorney General is not authorized to furnish such robes at the expense of the United States.
