No. 375

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.

250 F. 873 reversed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
