Herkness v. Irion

No. 3

Argued October 8, 1928

Decided November 19, 1928

278 U.S. 92


1. A bill which challenges the validity, under the federal Constitution, of an order of a state administrative board purporting to be authorized by a state statute, and seeks to enjoin its enforcement, is within the jurisdiction of the District Court under Jud.Code, § 266 where application for an interlocutory injunction is pressed to hearing, and an appeal from a decree dismissing the bill after the interlocutory injunction has been denied, may be taken directly to this Court. P. 278 U. S. 93.

2. Acts 91, of 1922, and 252, of 1924, of Louisiana, do not empower the Commissioner of Conservation to refuse a permit to manufacture carbon black from natural gas to a person able and willing to comply with the statutory requirements. P. 278 U. S. 94.

11 F.2d 386 reversed.

Appeal from a final decree of the district court dismissing a bill for an injunction. The Court, composed of three judges under Jud.Code § 266, had previously denied an application for a preliminary injunction.
