Decided April 27, 1942

Syllabus

The issues involved in a suit in the District Court by a Michigan dairy corporation against an Illinois city and its officials were: first, whether a city ordinance requiring that milk be delivered in "standard milk bottles" should be interpreted as forbidding delivery in paper containers; second, whether, if the ordinance were deemed applicable, it was in conflict with an Illinois statute enacted while the suit was pending, and third, whether, if applicable and valid under the state law, it was invalid under the Federal Constitution. Held that the case should be held by the federal courts to await the outcome of a later suit in the state court in which another corporation, chanrobles.com-red
