Voight v. Wright, 141 U.S. 62 (1891)
Voight v. Wright
Submitted November 28, 1890
Decided May 25, 1891
141 U.S. 62
The Act of Virginia of March, 1867 (now repealed), as set forth in c. 86, Code of Virginia, ed. 1873, providing that all flour brought into the state and offered for sale therein shall be reviewed and have the Virginia inspection marked thereon, and imposing a penalty for offering such flour for sale without such review or inspection, is repugnant to the commerce clause of the Constitution because it is a discriminating law, requiring the inspection of flour brought from other states when it is not required for flour manufactured in Virginia.
The case is stated in the opinion.
