Missouri, Kansas & Texas Ry. Co. v. May - 194 U.S. 267 (1904)
U.S. Supreme Court
Missouri, Kansas & Texas Ry. Co. v. May, 194 U.S. 267 (1904)
Missouri, Kansas & Texas Railway Company v. May
Submitted March 17, 1904
Decided May 2, 1904
194 U.S. 267
The law of Texas, c. 117, of 1901, directed solely against railroad companies and imposing a penalty for permitting Johnson grass or Russian thistle to go to seed upon their right of way, is not shown so clearly to deny the companies equal protection of the laws as to be held contrary to the Fourteenth Amendment.
