U.S. Supreme Court

Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. United States, 295 U.S. 476 (1935)

Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. United States

No. 552

Argued April 30, 1935

Decided May 20, 1935

295 U.S. 476

Syllabus

1. A shipper claiming that an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission infringes his right to reasonable and nondiscriminatory rate, and who was a party to the proceeding before the Commission, is entitled to sue to set the order aside under U.S.C., Title 28, §§ 46 and 47. P. 295 U. S. 479.

2. In determining the reasonableness of a rate, the Commission may consider its effect upon an existing rate structure which it has found to be just and reasonable. P. 295 U. S. 479.

3. Comparisons with other rates in the same or adjacent territory, though not conclusive of the reasonableness of the rate under investigation, have probative value. P. 295 U. S. 480.

4. An order of the Commission fixing minimum rates on ex-river coal from points on the Ohio River to destinations in Northern Ohio, upon a finding that the minima fixed are reasonable and that lower rates would create discrimination against shippers in origin districts who cannot use the water-rail route, and would tend to disrupt the rate structure and destroy proper differentials between various producing districts, held essentially an order under § 15, rather than § 3, of the Interstate Commerce Act. P. 295 U. S. 480.

7 F.Supp. 33 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the District Court, of three judges, dismissing a suit to annul an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission. chanrobles.com-red
