Eastern-Central Motor Carriers Assn. v. United States, 321 U.S. 194 (1944)

Eastern-Central Motor Carriers Association v. United States


No. 105


Argued December 15, 16, 1943
Decided February 7, 1944
321 U.S. 194

APPEAL FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK

Syllabus

In order to compete with railroads in the transportation of hard-surface floor-covering, motor carriers proposed to establish rates 47.5 percent of first class, minimum 20,000 pounds (truckload), and 45 percent of first class, minimum 30,000 pounds (carload). The Interstate Commerce Commission rejected the proposed rates as unjust and unreasonable, and unjustly discriminatory between shippers, so far as subject to a minimum of 30,000 pounds. Held that, because of the inadequacy of the record, this Court is unable to determine whether the decision of the Commission conforms to law, and the decree of the District Court refusing to set aside the Commission’s order must be reversed. P. 209.

48 F.Supp. 432 reversed.

Appeal from a decree of a District Court of three judges refusing to set aside an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission, 34 M.C.C. 641.
