Henderson Water Company v.
Corporation Commission of North Carolina
Argued November 18, 1925
Decided December 14, 1925
269 U.S. 278
Where a water company, bound to maximum rates by its contract with a city, applied to a state commission and secured an order
allowing an increase, but only one-half of that asked for, with the right, however, to apply for further relief at the end of a test period, the company, after making the test, must exhaust it remedy with the commission before suing in the district court to enjoin enforcement of the rate as confiscatory. P. 269 U. S. 280.
Appeal from a decree of the district court refusing a temporary injunction in a suit to restrain water rates on the ground of confiscation.
