Legal Documents relating to lawsuits resulting from Central Pacific Railroad stock manipulation. Attorney Alfed A. Cohen appears to have played a major role in these cases, and likely owned these documents. Individual stockholders in these cases received reduced or no dividends from their holdings, or were persuaded to sell their stocks back to the railroad at below value.
