It was their appeal that came before
the Appellnte Division.
In finding against all the defendants
and laying down a rule as to the lia
bility of directors of 11 corporation for t
false and fraudulent statement Issued
to secure subscriptions to stock, the j
coutt said: 1
"Directors who organize a corporation j
of this character knowing that at
tempts nre lieing made to Induce the '
public to subscribe to the corporation
or to purchase Its securities have lm- t
posed upon them a duty which Is not
discharged by wilfully shutting their 1
eyes lo the acts of other officers or
agents of the company as to methods
used to procure money from the pub- J
"They cannot authorize 'the issuance
of circulars and other appeals to the
public to secure the benefit of subscrip
tions to be made to tho corporation
nnd not be responsible for false and
fraudulent statements by which In
vestments In Its securities are ob
tained." Lehman-Charley also got Judgment
against the directors for his SHO.QOO.
