By reason of work done in Ohio, defendant-employer came within the provisions of that state's compulsory workmen's compensation law. The State of Ohio sought to collect insurance premiums due the state fund by an action brought in a Kentucky court. Defendant demurred on the ground that the claim was in the nature of one for taxes, and hence unenforceable extraterritorially. On appeal from an order sustaining the demurrer, held, reversed. Regardless of whether or not the claim for premiums can be classified as one for taxes, Kentucky courts may act as forums for the collection of foreign tax claims. State of Ohio ex rel. Duffy, Atty. Gen v. Arnett, (Ky. App. 1950) 234 S.W. (2d) 722.
