Scott County Road Co. v. Hines
Argued December 7, 8, 1909
Decided December 20, 1909
215 U.S. 336
Following the construction given by the state court, held that, where a charter for a toll-road provided that the privileges granted should continue fifty years subject to the right of the county to acquire it after twenty years, all privileges ceased on the expiration of the fifty years, and the owner of the franchise was not deprived of his property without due process of law, nor was the obligation of the contract in its charter impaired, by an injunction from further maintaining toll gates on such road.
207 Mo. 54 affirmed.
The facts are stated in the opinion.
