U.S. Supreme Court

Charleston & Western Carolina Ry. Co. v. Thompson, 234 U.S. 576 (1914)

Charleston & Western Carolina

Railway Company v. Thompson

No. 751

Argued April 15, 16, 1914

Decided June 22, 1914

234 U.S. 576

Syllabus

Under the free pass provision of the Hepburn Act of June 29, 1906, a free pass issued by a railroad company between interstate points to a member of the family of an employee is gratuitous, and not in consideration of services of the employe.

As a pass issued to a member of the family of an employee of a railroad company is free under the provision of the Hepburn Act permitting it to be issued, the stipulations contained in it and on which it is accepted, including one exempting the company from liability in case of injury, are valid.

Quaere whether, under § 6 of the Act to Regulate Commerce, an interstate carrier can issue a pass in consideration of services.

13 Ga.App. 528, 541, reversed.

The facts, which involve the liability of a railroad company to a member of the family of an employee traveling on a free pass issued by the company under the free pass provision of the Hepburn Act, are stated in the opinion.
