U.S. Supreme Court

Bell Tel. Co. v. Pennsylvania Pub. Util. Comm'n, 309 U.S. 30 (1940)

Bell Telephone Company v. Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission

No. 252

Argued January 10, 1940

Decided January 29, 1940

309 U.S. 30

Syllabus

1. When the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has refused appeal from an order of the Superior Court affirming a rate order of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, an appeal to this Court is from the judgment of the Superior Court. P. 309 U. S. 31.

2. In the absence of other constitutional objections, it cannot be said that a state court denies due process when, on appropriate hearing, it determines that there is evidence to sustain a finding of the violation of state law with respect to the conduct of local affairs. P. 309 U. S. 32.

3. Where there is no claim of confiscation, the state authority is competent to establish intrastate telephone rates, and, in so doing, to decide what constitutes an unreasonable discrimination with respect to intrastate traffic. P. 309 U. S. 32.

Appeal from 135 Pa.Super.Ct. 218; 5 A.2d 410, dismissed for want of a substantial federal question. chanrobles.com-red
