Stanley v. Public Utilities Commission
Argued April 3, 1935
Decided April 15, 1935
295 U.S. 76
In limiting the use of state highways for intrastate transportation for hire, the legislature reasonably may provide that carriers who have furnished adequate, responsible, and continuous service over a given route from a specified date in the past shall be entitled to licenses as a matter of right, but that the licensing of those whose service over the route began later than the date specified shall depend upon the public convenience and necessity. P. 295 U. S. 78.
133 Me. 91, 174 A. 93, affirmed.
Appeal from a judgment overruling exceptions taken in the court below for the review of an order of the Public
Utilities Commission of Maine. The order denied in part the appellant's application for a certificate of Public convenience and necessity authorizing him to operate motor vehicles as a common carrier, on certain designated highways.
