Prior revision: 1929 § 8102

(1974) Held that state of Missouri subjects itself to the same obligations as the federal government by accepting responsibility for administering relocation benefits and has thus consented to be sued in a controversy over relocation benefits.  Also held that entry into occupation of property after initiation of negotiations for the property has begun does not bar recovery of relocation benefits. Tullock v. State Highway Commission of Missouri (CA Mo.), 507 F.2d 712.

(1987) For actions against the Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission special venue is fixed in Cole County by 1927 judicial interpretation of section 226.100 since office is established in Jefferson City and thus venue in action against Commission pursuant to this section was improper.  State ex rel. Missouri Highway and Transportation Commission, 731 S.W.2d 461 (Mo. App.).
