Collins v. American Buslines, Inc.
Argued March 29, 1956
Decided April 9, 1956
350 U.S. 528
The widow and child of a bus driver applied for compensation under the Arizona Workmen's Compensation Act for his accidental death while driving an interstate bus in Arizona. He was a resident of California, and was covered by the California Workmen's Compensation Act. The bus line operated exclusively in interstate commerce, and was not insured in Arizona.
Held: the Commerce Clause of the Federal Constitution did not preclude Arizona from awarding compensation, even if the effect were to force the bus line to obtain insurance against liabilities arising in Arizona. Pp. 350 U. S. 528-531.
79 Ariz. 220, 286 P.2d 214, reversed and remanded.
