ISSUE: WON State can impugn the authority of estate’s lawyer to enter into a compromise
Neither may the State impugn the validity of the compromise agreement executed by the
Solicitor General on behalf of the State with the approval of the proper government officials, on
the ground that it was executed only by the lawyer of respondent estate, without any showing of
having been specially authorized to bind the estate thereby, because such alleged lack of
authority may be questioned only by the principal or client, and respondent estate as such
