U.S. Supreme Court

Southern Railway Co. v. Campbell, 239 U.S. 99 (1915)

Southern Railway Company v. Campbell

No. 53

Argued November 4, 1915

Decided November 15, 1915

239 U.S. 99

Syllabus

Where the only questions are whether the carrier's rule was applicable to the case and was properly applied, this Court is not concerned with the reasonableness of the rule.

Whether a rule of the carrier in regard to forfeiture of mileage books is reasonable is a question for the Interstate Commerce Commission.

Where the carrier's own rule provides that the mileage book can be forfeited if presented for passage by anyone other than the original purchaser the carrier cannot forfeit the book because the original purchaser presents it for transportation of someone other than himself.

The state court does not deny a federal right to a railroad company by simply holding it strictly to its own terms in connection with mileage books.

94 S.C. 95 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the right of a railroad company to forfeit a mileage book, and the construction of the rules under which such a book was issued in this case, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
