U.S. Supreme Court

Hecht Co. v. Bowles, 321 U.S. 321 (1944)

The Hecht Co. v. Bowles

No. 316

Argued February 3, 4, 1944

Decided February 28, 1944

321 U.S. 321


1. Under § 205(a) of the Emergency Price Control Act of 1942, the grant of an injunction, upon application of the Administrator and a showing that the defendant has engaged in acts or practice violative of 4 of the Act, is not mandatory, but is in the discretion of the court. P. 321 U. S. 328.

2. The discretion of the court under § 205(a) must be exercised in the light of the large objectives of the Act, for, in these cases, the standards of the public interest, not the requirement of private litigation, measure the propriety and need of injunctive relief. P. 321 U. S. 331.

3. Whether, upon the facts of this case, the District Court's refusal of an injunction was an abuse of discretion is not decided, and the cause is remanded to the Court of Appeals for determination of that question. P. 321 U. S. 331.

137 F.2d 689 reversed.

Certiorari, 320 U.S. 727, to review the reversal of an order dismissing the complaint, 49 F.Supp. 528, in a suit by the Price Administrator for an injunction to restrain the defendant from violations of price regulations.
