Longyear v. Toolan, 209 U.S. 414 (1908)
Longyear v. Toolan
Argued March 13, 1908
Decided April 6, 1908
209 U.S. 414
An owner of property must be held to knowledge that failure to pay duly assessed taxes will be followed by sale, and if the statute gives him full opportunity to be heard as to the assessment on definite days, and definitely fixes the time for payment and the time for sale in case of default, so that he cannot fail, if duly diligent, to learn of the pendency of the sale, he is not denied due process of law because the notice of sale is by publication, and not by personal service, and the validity of a tax sale under the law of Michigan sustained.
144 Mich. 55 affirmed.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
