Facts of the case

In a case similar to United States v. Belmont (1937), the United States attempted to assist the Soviet Union in recovering assets of the First Russian Insurance Company which the New York Superintendent of Insurance refused to release.

Question

Did U.S. agreements with the U.S.S.R. compel New York to release the assets?
