425.     Right of action.

A right of action which is vested in the bankrupt passes to the trustee, unless it is personal to the bankrupt1. Where a right of action is acquired by the bankrupt since the commencement of the bankruptcy and is not personal to him, it forms part of his after-acquired property2 of which he must give notice to the trustee3 and which the trustee may claim for the estate4.
