276 U.S. 567


1. A decree dismissing suit to enjoin special tax assessments which in terms is without prejudice to the right of the plaintiff to contest the matters in question as though the suit had not been instituted or the decree entered does not bar subsequent litigation of the same question. P. 276 U. S. 569.

3. A landowner who, being duly notified, fails to avail himself of an opportunity afforded by a state statute to be heard upon the question whether his land will be benefited by a proposed public improvement and upon the constitutionality of including it in the proposed improvement district cannot raise the question in this Court in a suit attacking the resulting assessment. P. 276 U. S. 574.
