U.S. Supreme Court
Chicago, St. P., M. & O. R. Co. v. United States, 322 U.S. 1 (1944)
Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Co. v.
Argued March 8, 1944
Decided April 10, 1944
322 U.S. 1
1. The findings upon which the Interstate Commerce Commission based its authorization of motor carrier operations in this case were supported by the evidence, and the court below properly declined to substitute its own inferences from the testimony for those of the Commission and to weigh the evidence anew. P. 322 U. S. 2.
2. Upon application by a motor carrier under §§ 206(a) and 207(a) of Part II of the Interstate Commerce Act for authorization of operations over certain routes, the Commission, upon the facts found, had power under § 208(a) to authorize the applicant to serve intermediate points on the routes, though the applicant had not sought authority in respect of the intermediate points. P. 322 U. S. 3.
3. The record does not sustain the claim that the protestants were denied the opportunity for an adequate hearing before the Commission. P. 322 U. S. 3.
50 F.Supp. 249 affirmed.
Appeal from a decree of a district court of three judges dismissing a suit to set aside in part an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission.
