U.S. Supreme Court

New York Central R. Co. v. Goldberg, 250 U.S. 85 (1919)

New York Central Railroad Company v. Goldberg

No. 256

Argued March 20, 1919

Decided May 19, 1919

250 U.S. 85


Under an interstate bill of lading providing that the owner or consignee shall pay the freight and all other lawful charges on the property, and that if, upon inspection, it is ascertained that the articles shipped are not those described in the bill, the freight charges must be paid upon the articles actually shipped, held that an innocent misdescription of the goods, placing them in a class entitled to a lower rate under the carrier's filed schedules merely imposed upon the shipper or consignee an obligation to pay freight charges according to their true character, and did not affect the liability of the carrier for a failure to deliver, there being no clause exempting the carrier or limiting its liability in case of such misdescription.

164 App.Div. 389, 221 N.Y. 539, affirmed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
