Public Service Commission of Missouri
Argued March 1, 1923
Decided March 19, 1923
261 U.S. 369
An order of a state commission requiring a railroad company to stop a designated interstate train at a city of 2,500 inhabitants for the purpose of taking on and discharging passengers, and to stop another there on signal for like purposes, held, under the circumstances, void as an undue interference with interstate commerce. P. 261 U. S. 371.
290 Mo. 389 reversed.
Error to a judgment of the Supreme Court of Missouri affirming a judgment of the state circuit court which affirmed, upon a writ of review obtained by the plaintiffs in error, an order of the defendant commission requiring the stopping of certain trains. The Director General of Railroads, who was in control of the railroad under the Federal Control Act, was joined in the proceedings with the Railway Company.
