Board of Pub. Util. Comm'rs v. Compania General, 249 U.S. 425 (1919)
Board of Public Commissioners
v. Compania General de Filipinas
Submitted March 18, 1919
Decided April 14, 1919
249 U.S. 425
Whether § 16(e) of Philippine Act 2307 violated the Organic Act, c. 1369, 32 Stat. 691, by delegating to the Board of Public Utility Commissioners power to prescribe the contents of reports required of corporate common carriers has become a moot question since this case was brought to this Court, due to an amendment of § 16(e), which itself prescribes in detail what the reports shall contain, and thereby supersedes the order here in question. The judgment is therefore reversed, with directions to dismiss the cause without costs to either party.
34 Phil.Rep. 136 reversed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
