Aluminum Co. of America v. Ramsey, 222 U.S. 251 (1911)

Aluminum Co. of America v. Ramsey

No. 56

Submitted November 8, 1911

Decided December 11, 1911

222 U.S. 251

Although the state court may have applied the statute to plaintiff in error merely as a corporation, if the record how that it is a corporation of a kind properly classified by the statute and there is equality within that class, the statute will not be held invalid as repugnant to the equal protection clause of the Constitution.

89 Ark. 522 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality, under the Fourteenth Amendment, of the Arkansas Fellow Servant Law, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
