Office of the Revisor of Statutes


The attorney general may bring an action in the name of the state to vacate or annul letters patent granted by the state, whenever the attorney general has reason to believe:

(1) that such letters were obtained by means of some fraudulent suggestion or concealment of a material fact, made by or with the consent or knowledge of the person to whom they were issued;

(2) that such letters were issued through mistake, or in ignorance of a material fact; or

(3) that the patentee, or those claiming under the patentee, have done or omitted an act in violation of the terms and conditions on which the letters were granted, or have by any other means forfeited the interest acquired thereunder.
