v. Varnville Furniture Company

No. 273

Argued May 12, 1915

state law on the same subject cannot he sustained as a help to the federal statute because it goes farther than Congress has seen fit to go.

A state statute which is a burden on interstate commerce is not saved by calling it an exercise of police power.

Section 2573, Code of 112, of South Carolina, imposing a penalty on carriers for failure to settle, or adjust, claims within forty days is an unconstitutional burden on interstate commerce and is also in conflict with the provisions of the Act to Regulate Commerce, as amended by the Act of June 29, 1906 (Carmack Amendment).

98 S.C. 63 reversed.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality under the commerce clause of the federal Constitution of certain provisions of the South Carolina Civil Code of 1912 imposing penalties on carriers for failure to pay claims within a specified period, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
