Missouri Pacific Railroad Company v. Prude

No. 272

Submitted May 1, 1924

Decided May 12, 1924

265 U.S. 99

Syllabus

1. A decision of a state supreme court denying an interstate carrier an immunity based upon a stipulation on an interstate passenger ticket held reviewable by certiorari and not by writ of error. P. 265 U. S. 100.

2. A ticket for interstate passage over several railroads bore a printed stipulation limiting the selling carrier's liability to its own lines. Held that, by accepting and using the ticket, though without reading it, a passenger must be presumed to have agreed to the stipulation, thereby establishing a contract, prima facie valid and binding in a state court. P. 265 U. S. 101.

156 Ark. 583 reversed.

Error and certiorari to a judgment of the Supreme Court of Arkansas affirming a judgment for damages in an action against the above named railroad company for an assault committed on the plaintiff while traveling over the line of a connecting carrier. chanrobles.com-red
