No. 709

Submitted April 2, 1941

Decided May 26, 1941

313 U.S. 362


Where a State has sold land under a tax title which is valid with the help of a statute curing irregularities in the tax proceeding, but invalid without it, a repeal of the curative statute impairs the obligation of the contract between the State and it vendee, in violation of the contract clause of the Federal Constitution. P. 313 U. S. 371.

201 Ark. 129; 143 S.W.2d 880, reversed.

Appeal from a decree affirming a decree quieting title in Lovett, relying on a deed from a former owner, against Wood et al., relying on a tax title.
