ROAD CASE DISMISSED
Circuit Judge Geo. Bagley, Hills
boro, has dismissed the w rit o f re
view in the case o f D. C. Lataurette
against Clackamas county, involving
the straightening o f the Oregon City
Viola road, according to word re
ceived Tuesday by County Clerk Don
ald J. Ryan. This is a victory for
the county and Latourette still has
the right to appeal the case to the
Latourette contended that the
county court’s steps had been illegal
in instituting proceedings that culmi
nated in the taking o f his property
for the straightening o f the road.
The question raised at the w rit of
review hearing was that the county
•ourt did not issue an order direct
ing the surveyor to make a survey
i f the road even though the resolu
tion set out that a survey had been
made by the court. Another angle
was that the resolution did not set
forth a proper necessity fo r taking
.he land fo r road purposes.
Judge Bagley also had to deter
mine whether or not the county sur
veyor had made a proper posting oi
notices and whether or not the coun
ty clerk had caused proper notices to
be forwarded by registered mail to
land owners as providedby law.
I f this case is carried to the su
preme court it will result in a decis
ion upon the meaning o f an act of
the last legislature, which set up new
procedure fo r location and re-loca
tion and straightening o f county
roads.— Morning Enterprise.
