U.S. Supreme Court
House v. Road Imp. Dist. No. 2, 266 U.S. 175 (1924)
House v. Road Improvement District
No. 2 of Conway County, Arkansas
Nos. 92 and 93
Argued October 17, 20, 1924
Decided November 17, 1924
266 U.S. 175
1. Where the decision of a state supreme court construed a road district statute as allowing twenty-eight days' notice by publication to landowners of proceedings to assess for benefits and adjudged that the notice published, read with the statute, sufficiently described the lands affected, held, that contentions that the statute did not provide due process of law were too insubstantial to support a writ of error. P. 266 U. S. 176.
2. The objection that a statute assessing lands for a road improvement is arbitrary and void as to plaintiff because the improvement could not benefit his lands, while other lands actually benefited were not included in the district assessed, held clearly without merit. P. 266 U. S. 177.
Writs of error to review 158 Ark. 330, 357, dismissed.
These were two suits to enjoin collection of special road taxes assessed on plaintiff's lands in Arkansas. Plaintiff prosecutes error to the decrees of the supreme court of that state affirming the decrees of the Chancery Court of Conway County, which denied her the relief prayed.
