Holden v. Hardy

Holden v. Hardy In 1898 the Supreme Court affirmed (7–2) an 1896 Utah law regulating the length of miners’ workdays, as a proper application of the state’s police powers; it also declared that in cases where one side bargains at a distinct disadvantage to the other, a state might intrude upon the usual right of parties to make contracts free from government interference. The Court reversed this general position in Lochner v. New York.
