APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE

Syllabus

The failure to enter a vote of stockholders in a corporation in the corporation records at the time when it was adopted does not affect its validity.

A resolution of stockholders in a corporation organized under the laws of Kentucky to increase the capital stock of the corporation, passed at a meeting held without the limits of that state, is binding upon the members present and voting for it.
