U.S. Supreme Court

Browne v. Union Pacific R. Co., 267 U.S. 255 (1925)

Browne v. Union Pacific Railroad Company

No. 194

Argued January 19, 1925

Decided March 2, 1925

267 U.S. 255


A purchaser of interstate shipments of grain sued the carrier for damages alleged to have resulted from the falsity of dates of original shipment as recited in substituted order bills of lading issued by the carrier's agent, and the state court sustained the carrier's defenses, partly upon the ground that such bills of lading were not strictly negotiable under the Federal Bill of Lading Act, as contended by the plaintiff, and partly upon other and nonfederal grounds. Held that, as the latter grounds were substantial and broad enough to sustain the.judgment, the judgment should be affirmed without considering the federal question.

113 Kans. 726 affirmed.
