Adams Express Co. v. Darden, 265 U.S. 265 (1924)

Adams Express Company v. Darden

No. 226

Argued April 22, 1924

Decided May 26, 1924

265 U.S. 265


1. A judgment of the circuit court of appeals in a case involving the liability of a carrier for injury to an interstate shipment under it tariff and shipping agreement and an act of Congress held reviewable by writ of error, and not by certiorari. P. 265 U. S. 266.

2. The first "Cummins Amendment" (March 4, 1915, c. 176, 38 Stat. 1196), made the carrier liable for the full actual loss of property shipped, when caused by the carrier, regardless of any agreement or representation of the shipper. Id.

So held where, without actual fraud, the value declared by the shipping contract on which the charge was based was much less than the actual value, and carried a lower tariff rate, and where the contract was on a form filed as part of the tariff and bore a notice that the true value must be declared.

286 F. 6 affirmed, certiorari denied.

Error to a judgment of the circuit court of appeals affirming a recovery of damages in the district court for loss of livestock in transit.
