U.S. Supreme Court

Florida East Coast Ry. Co. v. United States, 234 U.S. 167 (1914)

Florida East Coast Railway Company v. United States

No. 383

Argued January 15, 16, 1913

Decided June 8, 1914

234 U.S. 167

Syllabus

The rule that a finding of fact made by the Interstate Commerce Commission concerning a matter within the scope of the authority delegated to it is binding and may not be reexamined in the courts does not apply where the finding was made without any evidence whatever to support it; the consideration of such a question involves not an issue of fact, but one of law which it is the duty of the courts to examine and decide.

The record does not disclose any evidence justifying the order of the Commission directing a reduction of rates which had been held to be reasonable by a prior order of the Commission.

In a proceeding against several railroads, testimony as to the condition of traffic on certain railroads does not tend to establish conditions on another road in regard to which no testimony is given and where the record shows essential differences between it and those roads in regard to which the testimony was given.

200 F.7d 7 reversed.

The facts, which involve the validity of an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission establishing rates on citrus fruits and vegetables from points of production in Florida to exterior points of consumption, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
