Plaintiff hired a seismograph company to make surveys of certain land for the purpose of locating oil and gas. The results of the survey were favorable. An employee of the seismograph company communicated the results to the defendant who thereafter leased the land. Plaintiff brought suit to have defendant declared constructive trustee of the land for plaintiff. Held, that the relief could not be granted since defendant might have leased the land without such information. Ohio Oil Co. v. Sharp, (D. C. Okla. 1942) 45 F. Supp. 969.
