U.S. Supreme Court

Louisiana & Pine Bluff Ry. Co. v. United States, 257 U.S. 114 (1921)

Louisiana & Pine Bluff Railway Company v. United States

No. 291

Argued October 14, 1921

Decided November 7, 1921

257 U.S. 114

Syllabus

1. In a suit to set aside an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission, a claim that the order was unsupported by evidence cannot be considered if only part of the evidence taken before the Commission is introduced in the suit. P. 257 U. S. 116.

2. One of numerous lumber tap lines whose allowances, under joint rates and through routes with trunk lines, were fixed by the Commission with reference to length of tap-line haul added to its haul a preliminary out-of-line movement to a scales, where it weighed the shipments. The Commission, finding no necessity for weighing by the tap line, rather than by the trunk line, and that an increase of allowance based on such out-of-line haul would result in discrimination unjust to other tap lines and open the way for relocation of scales by other tap lines and increases of allowances amounting to rebates, refused to allow the out-of-line haul to be considered. Held that its order was not arbitrary or unreasonable. P. 257 U. S. 117.
