U.S. Supreme Court

Philadelphia & Reading Ry. Co. v. United States, 240 U.S. 334 (1916)

Philadelphia & Reading Railway Company v. United States

No. 440

Argued October 18, 19, 1915

Decided February 28, 1916

240 U.S. 334

Syllabus

Where, as in this case, no undue discrimination against the shipper or the locality of its plant is found, and the community declared to be prejudiced by the established conditions has not complained and is not a party to the proceeding, and the rate complained of is intrinsically reasonable, the mere fact that other carriers have adopted a lower schedule from the shipper's district to points other than the one designated affords no foundation for a finding by the Interstate Commerce Commission that such rate is unreasonable and erroneous as matter of law.

As the order of the Commission in this case is not supported by the ascertained facts, its enforcement should be enjoined.

219 F.9d 8, reversed.

The facts, which involve the validity of an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission relating to railway rates, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
