U.S. Supreme Court
ICC v. New York Central R. Co., 263 U.S. 603 (1924)
Interstate Commerce Commission v.
New York Central Railroad Company
Argued January 9, 10, 1924
Decided January 21, 1924
263 U.S. 603
1. Under the Act of August 18, 1922, amending § 22 of the Interstate Commerce Act, the rates for interchangeable mileage coupon tickets must be just and reasonable. P. 263 U. S. 609.
2. Where the Commission's conclusion that a reduced rate fixed by it for such tickets was just and reasonable was contradicted by its findings of fact and was obviously based on a misconception of the amendment as requiring a reduction, held that the conclusion was one of law, and not binding on the court. Id.
288 F. 951 affirmed.
Appeal from a decree of the district court which enjoined enforcement of an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission requiring the appellee railroads to issue scrip coupon tickets at reduced rates.
