U.S. Supreme Court

Dominion Hotel, Inc. v. Arizona, 249 U.S. 265 (1919)

Dominion Hotel, Incorporated v. State of Arizona

No. 178

Submitted March 11, 1919

Decided March 24, 1919

249 U.S. 265


Under the equal protection clause, a state may do what it can to prevent what is deemed an evil and stop short of those cases in which the harm to the few concerned is thought less important than the harm to the public that would ensue if the rule were made mathematically exact. P. 249 U. S. 268.

A law of Arizona (Penal Code, par. 717) placing restrictions upon the hours of labor of women in hotels, with penalties upon hotelkeepers for infractions, excepts in part railroad restaurants or eatinghouses upon railroad rights of way and operated by or under contract with any railroad company. Held that the Court cannot say, upon its judicial knowledge, that the legislature had no adequate ground for the distinction; possibly one might be found in the need of adjusting the service in the excepted restaurants to the hours of trains. Id.

18 Ariz. 345 affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
