Hitchcock  v.  Galveston

MR. JUSTICE BRADLEY, with whom concurred MR. JUSTICE MILLER and MR. JUSTICE FIELD, dissenting.

I dissent from the judgment of the court in this case, being of opinion that the provise requiring the assent of the property holders related to the entire work around each block, and not merely to the kind of pavement to be used; and that the contractors had no authority to do any work on any particular block, without such previous assent.


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).
