Handley v. Stutz
Submitted January 12, 1891
Decided March 30, 1891
139 U.S. 417
APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED
STATES FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF TENNESSEE
The failure to enter a vote of stockholders in a corporation in the corporation records at the time when it was adopted does not affect its validity.
A resolution of stockholders in a corporation organized under the laws of Kentucky to increase the capital stock of the corporation, passed at a meeting held without the limits of that state, is binding upon the members present and voting for it.
