U.S. Supreme Court

Green County v. Conness, 109 U.S. 104 (1883)

Green County v. Conness

Submitted October 9, 1883

Decided October 29, 1883

109 U.S. 104


1. The Court adheres to its former rulings in regard to the liability of municipal corporations to innocent holders of the bonds of such corporations, issued in aid of railroads. Douglas v. Pike County, 101 U. S. 677.

2. The rights of such holders are to be determined by the law as it was judicially construed to be when the bonds were put on the market as commercial paper.

3. A consolidation of two railroad corporations merges the franchises and privileges of each in the new company, so that they continue to exist in respect to the roads thus consolidated.

Suit to recover coupons due on bonds issued by the county in payment of a subscription made by virtue of the laws of the Missouri to aid in the construction of a railroad that became consolidated with the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. The authority to lend the aid was obtained before the consolidation, and was exercised after it. The defendant in error was the owner and holder for value of some of the bonds before maturity. Judgment against the county in the court below. Error to reverse that judgment.
