Thomson v. United States


No. 70


Argued December 7, 1943
Decided January 17, 1944
321 U.S. 19

APPEAL FROM THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS

Syllabus

1. In respect of operations by motor vehicle in a coordinated rail motor freight service -- the motor vehicles being operated by contractors under arrangements described in the opinion -- only the railroad was a "common carrier by motor vehicle" entitled to "grandfather" rights under § 206(a) of Part II of the Interstate Commerce Act, since it alone held itself out to the general public to engage in such service. P. 23.

2. The Commission’s so-called "control and responsibility" test, so far as it leads to a different result, is disapproved. P. 26.

Reversed.

Appeal from a decree of a District Court of three judges, dismissing the complaint in a suit to set aside an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission, 31 M.C.C. 299.
