Stone v. Illinois Central Railroad Company
Argued October 13-14, 1885
Decided January 4, 1886
116 U.S. 347
This was a bill in equity praying for an injunction to restrain the railroad commissioners in Mississippi from enforcing
the act referred to in Stone v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., ante, 116 U. S. 307, against the Illinois Central Railroad Company as the lessee of the Chicago, St. Louis and New Orleans Railroad, in the State of Mississippi. The bill was demurred to. After the demurrer was overruled, the bill was taken as confessed, and an injunction was granted. The defendant appealed to this Court. The case was argued with Stone v. Farmers' Loan & Trust Co., ante, 116 U. S. 307, and Stone v. New Orleans & Northeastern Railroad, post, 116 U. S. 352, substantially the same questions being involved in the three cases.
