Content Description

The law firm of Algood & Finley was formed in Cookeville, Tennessee by notable lawyer Alfred Algood (1855-1925) soon after the end of his term (1886-1894) as Attorney-General of the 5th Judicial Circuit. Algood initially resumed his private practice and in short order formed the partnership with Thomas B. (Benton) Finley (1869-1954), which lasted until Major Finley was commissioned as a Judge Advocate during World War I in 1917. This brief docket details personal injury and damage to property claims cases against the Tennessee Central and Southern Railways, and their rulings, handled by their partnership between 1905 and 1912. Inserted in the docket is a Nashville Banner newspaper clipping of an article entitled “Court of Civil Appeals Rules”, dated April 26, 1907.
