U.S. Supreme Court
Great Northern Railway Co. v. Delmar Co., 283 U.S. 686 (1931)
Great Northern Railway Co. v. Delmar Co.
Argued April 30, May 1, 1931
Decided May 25, 1931
283 U.S. 686
An interstate rail tariff offering a through rate between points which are connected by two routes of the carrier, one more circuitous than the other, should be construed as applicable only to the shorter
route if the through rate is less than the rates applicable from the same point of origin to intermediate points on the longer route so that application of the through rate to the longer route would involve the carrier in breaches of the long- and-short-haul clause (§ 4) of the Interstate Commerce Act. P. 283 U. S. 690.
43 F.2d 780 reversed.
Certiorari, 282 U.S. 836, to review a judgment of the Circuit Court of Appeals which affirmed a judgment of the district court awarding reparations against the railway company for charges made on shipments of grain.
