4961.08 Damages for diversion.

When, under section 4961.07 of the Revised Code, a railroad company's line of railroad is diverted from a county named in the articles of incorporation, such company is liable to any person owning land in the county for damages caused by the change or diversion. All subscribers to the capital stock of the company on the line of that part of its railroad so changed shall be released from all obligation to pay their subscriptions. Saving the rights of infants, lunatics, and persons imprisoned, for six months after their disability is removed, no action shall be brought for damages caused by such change or diversion, unless it is begun within six months from the filing of the certificate for the change with the secretary of state, and the publication of notice thereof by the company for four consecutive weeks in a newspaper published in such county.
