Notes / Description: 

Incomplete file; briefs only. Pickle sued Williford, road hand for refusing to work on public roads, task from which Williford insisted he was exempt due to disability per county court order. Court said county court had authority to grant exemption but only upon proof of permanent disability, which was lacking in this case; because it was issued summarily, order was void. Williford appealed to SC. Pickle claimed Williford was not disabled but had personal issue w/road overseer.
