Gibbon v. 3920 Lake Shore Drive Bldg. Corp.

Appellate Court of Illinois, First District
May 13, 1941
34 N.E.2d 109 (Ill. App. Ct. 1941)

Opinion

Gen. No. 41,315. (Abstract of Decision.)

Opinion filed May 13, 1941

CORPORATIONS, § 533restrictions on transfer of stock, reasonableness. In mandamus action to compel transfer of stock on books of corporation, resolution of stockholders requiring stock to be first offered to corporation for sale was intended to apply to sales to strangers, not sales between stockholders such as was involved in instant case, and resolution was also unreasonable because it required an idle act, because after reorganization the corporation had no funds with which to purchase such stock.

See Callaghan's Illinois Digest, same topic and section number.

Appeal from Circuit Court of Cook county; Hon. HARRY M. FISHER, presiding.

Judgment granting writ of mandamus affirmed. Heard in second division, first district, this court at June term, 1940.

Michael M. Phillips and Gerald Turnbull, for appellants;

Poppenhusen, Johnston, Thompson Raymond, for appellee;

Albert E. Jenner, Jr., of counsel.
