: MONDAY, MAY'20, 194G Property Owners Win in Tax Case Supreme Court Voids Law Under Which Appeal Was Made. LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Muy 20. (UP)—The Arkansas Supreme Court today held as unconstitutional Article 13071 of Pope's Digest dealing with appeals from courts of equalization. The court said that the seclton contravenes the 14th Amendment lo the U. S. Constitution in perini'.ilvi} an appeal from the board without requiring any notice to properly owners against whom a possible increase in tax assessments is sought. .The action affirmed a Pulaslti Circuit Court decision in dismissing a tase brought against the Cumniur- ciul National Bunk and four other capital city banks by I'ulaski cuim- ty and others. Joined in the suit were the city of Little Rock, the Little Rock Special School Distrie:, I'u- laski county and John M. nose, an attorney. • They applied to the Pulaski County Board of Equali/atioji for n;i increase to correct alleged eivcme- ous assessments that resulted from a formula they said war too !o\v. Twife Drilled Previously The board and the county court both denied the The dismissal was granted in the circuit court aflcr a review of n motion made by the appellants. The motion, baaed on five points, called attention to the ineffectiveness of tlic -section in failing to provide for ro- tlce of properly owners whose assessment is questioned. In a companion case, the satne appellants brought suit against the National Old Line Insurance Co., the Naiional Equity Insurance Co.. the Pyramid Insurance Co.. challenging the formula used by the companies to compute the value of slmres of stock. The case followed lite same outline as the bank case, with trie insurance companies filing ii motion for dismissal in circuit court. Motions in both cases were arjjit:!il simultaneously. The Supreme Court allowed dismissal In both cases with Justice N'. F. McPadtten entering a dissenting opinion, and Justice E. I.,. McHaney concurring. Tn another case, the Supreme Court held that a deposition may be taken out of the state- witho it a previous court order. In upholding a Stone chancery court decision, (he Supreme Court also said that nine days' notice is sufficient before taking n deposition and that written questions are not necessary unless the affinnts require them beforehand.
