U.S. Supreme Court

ICC v. Diffenbaugh, 222 U.S. 42 (1911)

Interstate Commerce Commission v. Diffenbaugh

No. 285, 286, 287

Argued October 13, 18, 1911

Decided November 13, 1911

222 U.S. 42


The Interstate Commerce Act does not attempt to equalize fortune, opportunities, or abilities; it contemplates payment of reasonable compensation by carriers for services rendered, and instrumentalities furnished, by owners of property transported, the only power of the Commission being to determine the maximum of such compensation. Contracts made by various railroads for elevation expenses of grain at points of transshipment at rates not exceeding those fixed by the Commission as reasonable held not to be illegal discriminations or rebates when paid to owners of elevators on their own grain although such owners performed services other than those paid for at the same time to their own advantage.

176 F.4d 9 modified and affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
