U.S. Supreme Court

Fair Haven & Westville R. Co. v. New Haven, 203 U.S. 379 (1906)

Fair Haven and Westville Railroad Company v. New Haven

No. 84

Argued November 5, 6, 1906

Decided December 3, 1906

203 U.S. 379


A general law requiring street railways to keep a certain space between and outside their tracks paved and repaved and assessing them therefor amounts, in respect to companies whose charters contain other provisions, to an amendment thereof, and as such a purpose is consistent with the object of the grant, it falls within the reserved power of the state to alter, amend or repeal the original charter, and if imposed in good faith and not in sheer oppression, the act is not void either as depriving the company of its property without due process of law or as impairing the contract obligations of the original grant. So held as to law of 1899 of Connecticut.

One of the public rights of great extent of the state is the establishment, maintenance and care of its highways. West Chicago Railway v. Chicago, 201 U. S. 506.

77 Conn. 677 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
