Pacific Telephone & Telegraph Co. v.
Public Utilities Commission of California
Decided August 13, 1979*
443 U.S. 1301
Applications to stay, pending disposition of applicants' petitions for certiorari, the Court of Appeals' mandate issued upon affirming the District Court's denial of declaratory and injunctive relief against enforcement of a rate order earlier promulgated by respondent California Public Utilities Commission which ordered applicants to refund certain charges paid by subscribers and to reduce certain rates, are denied, and a previously issued temporary stay is dissolved. This Court previously denied applicants' petitions for certiorari (and rehearing) to review the Commission's rate order after the California Supreme Court had denied applicants' request for review, and the applicants simply seek to relitigate federal tax issues that were determined adversely to them in such earlier proceedings, there being no intervening events to change that outcome.
