claims for royalty. In June, 1919, Attorney General Brown, in an
opinion renuerea tne nignway commission, aavisea as iouows;
"In our opinion, the safest and most satisfactory way to
determine this question is by action in court which should be
prosecuted to the tribunaal of last resort, so that a final and com
plete determination of the issues may be had, and in this connec
tion, it occurs to us that it would be advisable, in the construction
of pavements for the state highway commission to employ specifi
cations which will give the practical benefits of the Warren
pavement and yet differ to such an extent, that it could be con
tended that the Warren pavement was not infringed, which
defense could be combined with the defense of the invalidity of
However, the state highway commission ignored the advice
of its legal adviser, and will now have the alternative Qf a costly
legal battle to contest the validity of the patent or an equally ex
pensive compromise with the Warrens, who will thereby gain ad
ditional prestige to force payment of royalties from counties and
communities all of which could have been avoided without affect
ing the quality of pavement.
