U.S. Supreme Court

Piedmont Power & Light Co. v. Graham, 253 U.S. 193 (1920)

Piedmont Power & Light Company v. Town of Graham

Nos. 684, 685

Motion to dismiss or affirm or place on the summary docket

submitted April 19, 1920

Decided May 17, 1920

253 U.S. 193

Syllabus

The proposition that a municipality, having granted to a company the right to use the streets for distributing electricity, would impair the rights of the grantee and deprive it of property without due process if it granted a like right to a rival company is frivolous if the first grant is plainly nonexclusive, and an appeal from the district court based on such claim must be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. P. 253 U. S. 194.

Appeals dismissed.

The cases are stated in the opinion.
