    RICHARD v. CITY OF MOBILE, 208 U.S. 480 (1908)

    U.S. Supreme Court

    RICHARD v. CITY OF MOBILE, 208 U.S. 480 (1908)

    208 U.S. 480

    EDWARD E. RICHARD and Ralph G. Richard, Partners as S. Pichard & Sons, Appts.,
    v.
    CITY OF MOBILE.
    No. 112.

    Argued January 17, 1908.
    Decided February 24, 1908.

    Messrs. Richard Wm. Stoutz and Walter A. White for appellants.

    Mr. Burwell Boykin Boone for appellee.

    Mr. Justice Peckham delivered the opinion of the court:

    This is an appeal from a judgment of the circuit court of the United States for the southern district of Alabama, sustaining the demurrer of the city of Mobile to a bill filed by the appellants, and dismissing the same. It appears that the appellants sought to obtain an injunction to restrain the city from collecting the amount of the license tax imposed under the ordinance of the city upon those who were engaged in selling beer in the city by the barrel, half barrel, or quarter barrel. [208 U.S. 480, 481]   The question involved is, as counsel for appellants admits, identical with that which has just been decided in the foregoing case, No. 113 [ 208 U.S. 472 , 52 L. ed. --, 28 Sup. Ct. Rep. 370], and for the reasons therein stated the judgment of the Circuit Court is affirmed.
