Shaffer v. Howard
Argued December 13, 1918
Decided March 10, 1919
249 U.S. 200
A suit against state officials to enjoin the enforcement of a tax becomes moot and must be dismissed on appeal where it appears that defendants' term of office has expired and that their successors have qualified, when there is no law authorizing a revival or continuance against the latter.
