U.S. Supreme Court

Weeds, Inc. v. United States, 255 U.S. 109 (1921)

Weeds, Inc. v. United States

No. 558

Argued October 19, 20, 1920

Decided February 28, 1921

255 U.S. 109


Section 4 of the Food Control Act is unconstitutional, because of its uncertainty, not only in the clause penalizing sales of necessaries at "unjust or unreasonable rates or charges" (United States v. Cohen Grocer Co., ante, 255 U. S. 81), but also in the clause penalizing conspiracies to exact "excessive prices."


Plaintiffs in error were convicted under § 4 of the Food Control Act of conspiracy to exact excessive prices for wearing apparel, and, in furtherance of the conspiracy, of putting on sale in a store various articles of clothing at prices varying from 110 to 194 percent in advance of cost, and also of making sales of various suits of clothes at unreasonable prices. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
