Detroit & Mackinac Railway Company
v. Fletcher Paper Company
Motions to dismiss or affirm or place on the summary docket
submitted October 8, 1918
Decided November 18, 1918
248 U.S. 30
Various questions of law, involving the fixing of railroad rates on intrastate traffic and reparation to shippers held local, and not reviewable in error to the state court.
Where the carrier has full opportunity to test whether rates are confiscatory in a suit against the rate-fixing commission, provision of the state law making the judgment conclusive against the carrier in subsequent actions for reparation is consistent with the Fourteenth Amendment.
198 Mich. 469 affirmed.
The cases are stated in the opinion.
