Notes / Description: 

Cause of action: Failure to work the road. Walker in his capacity as Road Commissioner brought suit against Sugg for failure to "work the road," in 1890, pay the $0.75 per day as required by statute, or furnish an able bodied substitute. Sugg claims that he is a resident of Louisiana (where he teaches high school) and is not required to participate.
