U.S. Supreme Court
Missouri v. Dockery, 191 U.S. 165 (1903)
Missouri v. Dockery
Argued October 27, 1903
Decided November 16, 1903
191 U.S. 165
The rights of an individual under the Fourteenth Amendment turn on the power of the state. A state does not infringe his rights under that amendment by exempting a corporation from a tax either wholly or in part, whether such exemption results from the plain language of a statute or from the conduct of a state official under it.
The facts appear in the opinion of the court. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
