Plaintiff sued a corporation and its president to recover money paid for purchase of stock sold in violation of the ''blue sky" laws of Michigan. The president, through correspondence, had induced plaintiff to complete the purchase. Plaintiff had judgment below against both defendants. The president alone appealed, contending among other things that he was not an "agent" within the meaning of the statute. Held, affirmed. The word "agent" in the Michigan statute1 includes officers and directors of the corporation whether they are authorized "agents" or are holding themselves out as "agents" of the corporation. Cleland v. Smart, 321 Mich. 46, 32 N.W. (2d) 42 (1948).
