U.S. Supreme Court

Chicago & Eastern Illinois R. Co. v. United States, 375 U.S. 150 (1963)

Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad Co. v. United States

No. 275

Decided December 2, 1963

375 U.S. 150

Syllabus

The Interstate Commerce Commission ordered appellants to cancel a joint barge-rail rate of $3.36 per net ton, in minimum lots of 5,000 net tons, for the movement of bituminous coal from Huntington, W.Va., via Mount Vernon, Ind., to the Chicago, Ill., district, on the ground that the rate was noncompenstory and, therefore, unjust and unreasonable under § 1(5) of the Interstate Commerce Act. A three-judge Federal District Court dismissed appellants' suit to set aside the order, and appellants appealed directly to this Court.

Held: The judgment is affirmed.

Affirmed.
