About

Central Pacific Railroad Company Lawsuits
Legal documents relating to lawsuits resulting from Central Pacific Railroad stock manipulation. Attorney Alfred A. Cohen represented the plaintiffs, and likely owned these documents. Individual stockholders in these cases received reduced or no dividends from their holdings, or were persuaded to sell their stock back to the railroad at below value. San Joaquin County had subscribed to stock in the Western Pacific Railroad, and at the time of its merger into the Central Pacific the county’s stocks seemingly disappeared. In two of these lawsuits the plaintiffs attempted to put the Central Pacific Railroad under State of California operation.
