U.S. Supreme Court

Carroll v. Greenwich Ins. Co. of New York, 199 U.S. 401 (1905)

Carroll v. Greenwich Insurance Company of New York

No. 50

Argued November 7-8, 1905

Decided November 27, 1905

199 U.S. 401

Syllabus

Section 1754 of the Iowa Code of 1897, prohibiting combinations of insurance companies as to rates, commissions, and manner of transacting business, is not unconstitutional as depriving the companies of their property or of their liberty of contract within the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment, and the auditor of the state will not be enjoined from enforcing the provisions of the statute.

A company lawfully doing business in a state is no more bound by a general unconstitutional enactment than a citizen of that state.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanrobles.com-red
