In a recent decision, the Supreme Court of West Virginia decided that certain statutory provisions of the Code were unconstitutional insofar as they permitted a limitation on the right of a stockholder in any corporation to vote for the directors of such a corporation. The constitutionality of the applicable statutes was discussed in two articles printed in this law review twenty-four years ago, but in light of the decision in State ex rel. Dewey Portland Cement Co. v. O'Brien4 (for the purposes of this note, this case will be designated the Dewey Cement Co. case.), there is valid reason to examine the subject of nonvoting stock once more.
