If the modern cases are to be judged in light of what the courts say, it is probable that Judge Tilghman's views are the weight of authority. While a few courts frankly admit that inspectors do act judicially at times, most of the courts continue to define the actions of the inspectors in ministerial terms. However, there are two areas within which the inspectors may exercise such unusual powers that they may be called judicial, namely, those relating to the ascertainment of (1) the validity of proxies and (2) title to stock. The scope of this comment is confined to these two areas with attention directed to the scope of the inspectors' powers and the effect of their findings on the courts.
