Southern Power Co. v. North Carolina Pub. Svc. Co., 263 U.S. 508 (1924)

Southern Power Company v.

North Carolina Public Service Company

No. 110

Argued November 28, 1923

Decided January 7, 1924

263 U.S. 508

Syllabus

A writ of certiorari, granted under the impression, induced by the petition, that a question of public importance is involved, will be dismissed when the argument reveals that the impression was erroneous.

Writ of certiorari to review, 282 F. 837, dismissed.

Certiorari to a decree of the circuit court of appeals which reversed in part a decree of the district court in a case removed from a court of North Carolina. The proceeding was brought by the Public Service Company and two cities, under North Carolina statutes, to compel the present petitioner to continue furnishing electric power to the Public Service Company for use in operating street cars in the cities, and for the use of the cities and their citizens for light and power. The decree of the district court, as modified by the court below, granted this relief.
