U.S. Supreme Court

Midland Valley R. Co. v. Barkley, 276 U.S. 482 (1928)

Midland Valley R. Co. v. Barkley

No. 375

Argued March 9, 1928

Decided April 9, 1928

276 U.S. 482


A railroad, in a time of coal-car shortage, distributed open-top cars to tipple mines, which can use only that type, and boxcars to wagon mines. The owner of a wagon mine, shipping interstate, refused boxcars and, relying on § 22 of the Interstate Commerce Act, sued the railroad in the state court for breach of its duty to furnish cars under the local law. Held that the action would not lie, since the question at issue was the reasonableness of the carrier's practice of car distribution, which was an administrative question for the Interstate Commerce Commission. P. 276 U. S. 484.

172 Ark. 898, reversed.

Certiorari, 275 U.S. 514, to a judgment of the Supreme Court of Arkansas which affirmed a recovery in an action against the railroad for failure to furnish coal cars. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
