Leach v. Carlile, 258 U.S. 138 (1922)

No. 105

Submitted January 18, 1922

Decided February 27, 1922

258 U.S. 138


Whether the advertising of a medicinal preparation through the mails so grossly overstates its true virtue as to work a fraud upon the public is a question of fact committed to the decision of the Postmaster General, and his conclusion will not be reviewed by the courts when fairly arrived at and supported by substantial evidence. P. 258 U. S. 139.

267 F. 61 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a decision of the district court dismissing the bill in appellant's suit to enjoin enforcement of a postal fraud order.
