Court Documents

United States Supreme Court

82 U.S. 470

City of Charleston  v.  Branch

in which case Branch had filed a bill against the councils of the said city and against the same South Carolina Railroad Company, to prevent the former from collecting and the latter from paying a tax, levied by the city on the station-house of the railroad, and the property appurtenant to it in the said city. The principles involved were the same as in the last case, and the court below granted the injunction, thus holding the property free from taxation. The city appealed.

After argument by the same counsel as in the former case, the opinion of the court was delivered by

Mr. Justice BRADLEY:


This work is in the public domain in the United States because it is a work of the United States federal government (see 17 U.S.C. 105).
