U.S. Supreme Court

Violet Trapping Co., Inc. v. Grace, 297 U.S. 119 (1936)

Violet Trapping Co., Inc. v. Grace

No. 302

Argued January 10, 13, 1936

Decided February 3, 1936

297 U.S. 119


Lands which a State had acquired by adjudication for nonpayment of taxes were leased by it for a term limited to end if the lands were redeemed by the former owner or sold by the State. Held, that a later statute, permitting redemption on terms less onerous than those in force when the lease was made, did not impair the lessee's rights under the contract clause of the Constitution or the due process and equal protection clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment. P. 297 U. S. 120.

182 La. 405, 162 So. 26, affirmed.

Appeal from a judgment affirming the dismissal of a suit in which a mandamus was sought to cancel certificates of redemption of land from tax sales, and an injunction against assertions of title thereunder.
