Plaintiff and defendant owned lots in a subdivision restricted of covenants to residences. The city council passed a zoning ordinance under which the lot owned by the defendant was classified for commercial uses. He secured a permit to erect a gasoline station on the lot and plaintiff sought an injunction restraining him from so doing. Held, that the zoning ordinance did not nullify or supersede the restrictive covenant and hence the injunction could properly be issued. Dolan v. Brown (Ill. 1930) 170 N.E. 425.
