This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1921 edition. Excerpt: ...the fact that plaintiff or defendant is a corporation.." As sustaining the above proposition, a long list of the most respectable authorities is cited. We find this same proposition of law laid down in 7 Ruling Case Law, in section 700, at page 697. Cyc. cites for the minority view cases from California, Connecticut, Texas and Iowa. 7 Ruling Case Law, in section 701, at page 698, cites an Idaho and South Dakota case to sustain the minority view.

As opposed to this rule, we find the citations to an early Connecticut case and a Texas case and...
