U.S. Supreme Court

Western Union Tel. Co. v. Boegli, 251 U.S. 315 (1920)

Western Union Telegraph Company v. Boegli

No. 83

Submitted December 19, 1919

Decided January 12, 1920

251 U.S. 315


An act of Congress regulating a subject of interstate commerce is not to be narrowly construed for the purpose of preserving the state power over the same subject previously enjoyed in the absence of federal legislation. P. 251 U. S. 316.

The Act of June 18, 1910, c. 309, 36 Stat. 545, brought telegraph companies under the Act to Regulate Commerce and under the administrative control of the Interstate Commerce Commission, and so subjected such companies to a uniform national rule, incompatible with a power in the states to inflict penalties for failure to make prompt delivery of interstate messages. Id. Postal Telegraph-Cable Co. v. Warren-Godwin Lumber Co., ante, 251 U. S. 27.

187 Ind. 238 reversed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
