    HUGHES v. WENDEL, 317 U.S. 134 (1942)

    317 U.S. 134

    WENDEL, County Treasurer of Butler County, Ohio, et al.
    No. 176.

    On Statement as to Jurisdiction, Decided Nov. 16, 1942

    Mr. George S. Hawke, of Cincinnati, Ohio, for appellant.

    Mr. Paul A. Baden, of Hamilton, Ohio, for appellees.


    Appellant is the owner of a 99-year perpetually renewable lease of which the University of Miami, in Ohio, is lessor, and which has been subjected to assessment of county taxes pursuant to 5330 of the Ohio General Code. Appellant contends that this statute as applied violates an exemption from taxation granted by 13 of an Ohio statute of February 17, 1809 (7 Ohio Laws, p. 188), which allegedly became a part of her contract through execution of the lease, and impairs the obligation of her contract contrary to Article I, 10 of the Constitution. The record, however, does not set forth appellant's lease, and the incomplete summary of it contained in her pleading is not adequate to enable us to determine what her rights may be. Accordingly, we must dismiss the appeal.
