Description

Excerpt from The Federal Courts and the Orders of the Interstate Commerce Commission The last class Of cases which need be mentioned is that in which the Commission has attempted to control rates either absolutely or relatively. The cases of this sort which have gone to the courts have sometimes been decided against the Commission because of its attempts to exercise legislative functions that have never been delegated to it, but a study Of the decisions themselves, affords ample warrant for the statement that the disapproval of the Commission's action has usually extended to its conclusions upon the facts. Thus, in the Coxe case (see page 37) the court reported that the basis of the Commission's determination as to what constituted a reasonable rate under the circumstances was an unwarrantable and unreliable estimate which the Commission had based upon an erroneous principle. In the Social Circle case (see page 42) the court declared that the Commission had omitted to consider a fact of controll ing importance, and in the Cattle Raisers' case (see page 160) the Supreme Court distinctly said that in its Opinion the order Of the Commission was not sustained by the facts upon which it was predicated.
