2. A suit against a state commission to enjoin enforcement of confiscatory rates will not be defeated by the objection that the plaintiff should first have exhausted its legislative remedy by filing a new application for increases when the plaintiff's application for that purpose had been uniformly recognized by the commission as pending before it, and the objection was purely technical. P. 270 U. S. 590.
