"The decision of the Court of Appeals held the act in question unconstitutional. It was reported at 7 New York Rep. 9" [Cohen]. Emphasizing the constitutional restraints on the New York Legislature Denio, who later became a Judge of the Court of Appeals, New York's highest court, argues that New York's Constitution prescribed the mode for completing the canals system; that the statute enacted by the Legislature prescribed a different mode of completion; and that the statute was therefore void because it conflicted with the Constitution. Denio's argument is a detailed presentation of the financial aspects of New York's canal system.
