Railway Company v. C. L. Merrick Company
Argued January 29, 1920
Decided December 20, 1920
254 U.S. 376
A decree of this Court affirming "without prejudice" an injunctive decree of a state court upholding a statutory railroad rate against a charge of confiscation determines the adequacy of the rate for the period antedating the decree, and is not superseded by a decree in a subsequent suit holding the rate confiscatory upon new evidence developed by a further test. P. 254 U. S. 377.
A federal question which has been specifically settled and is no longer an open one in this Court is not an adequate basis for a writ of error. Id.
Writ of error to review 35 N.D. 331 dismissed.
The case is stated in the opinion.
