U.S. Supreme Court Farrell v. West Chicago Park Comm'rs, 181 U.S. 404 (1901)

Farrell v. West Chicago Park Commissioners

No. 201

Argued March 18-19, 1901

Decided April 29, 1901

181 U.S. 404

ERROR TO THE SUPREME COURT

OF THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

Syllabus

French v. Barber Asphalt Co. ante, 181 U. S. 324 , and Wight v. Davidson, ante, 181 U. S. 371 , followed.

The case is stated in the opinion of the Court.

MR. JUSTICE SHIRAS delivered the opinion of the Court.

This case originated in proceedings to create and improve an avenue or thoroughfare known as Douglas Boulevard, in the Town of West Chicago.

The full history of those proceedings, contained in the statement of facts made by this Court in the case of Lombard v. West Chicago Park Commissioners, recently decided, renders it unnecessary to repeat them here. And the legal questions involved were so fully discussed in that case and in French v. Barber Asphalt Co. and Wight v. Davidson, cognate cases decided at the present term of this Court, that we are relieved from their further consideration.

The judgment of the Supreme Court of the Illinois is

Affirmed.

MR. JUSTICE HARLAN, with whom concurred MR. JUSTICE WHITE and MR. JUSTICE McKENNA, dissenting.

The controlling question in the above case is the same as is presented in French v. Barber Asphalt Paving Co., ante, 181 U. S. 324 , Wight v. Davidson, ante, 181 U. S. 371 , and Tonawanda v. Lyon, ante, 181 U. S. 389 , just decided. For reasons stated in my opinions in those cases, I dissent from the opinion and judgment of the Court in this case.
