that the club could disregard the valid laws subsequently enacted by the state regulating the sale of liquor.

The judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction of Virginia, made after a hearing, that a corporation of that state had violated the liquor laws of the state and that, in pursuance of statutory provisions, the charter rights and franchises of the club ceased without further proceedings held in this case not to have violated any right belonging to the club under the contract or due process clauses of the Constitution of the United States.
