U.S. Supreme Court
Fort Smith & Western R. Co. v. Mills, 253 U.S. 206 (1920)
Fort Smith & Western R. Co. v. Mills
Argued December 13, 1917
Decided June 1, 1920
253 U.S. 206
The Act of September 3, 5, 1916, known as the Adamson Law, although by its general terms purporting to apply to all railroad and railroad employees subject to the Act to Regulate Commerce, was not intended to govern the exceptional case of an insolvent railroad operating at a loss under an agreement with its men, which they desired to keep, allowing them less wages than the act prescribed. Wilson v. New, 243 U. S. 332, considered.
The case is stated in the opinion.
