Looney v. Eastern Texas Railroad Company

No. 756

Argued April 1, 17, 1918

Decided May 20, 1918

247 U.S. 214


In a suit by carriers to restrain the attorney general of a state from instituting suits against them for damages and penalties for complying with an order of the Interstate Commerce Commission respecting rates, the district court issued a preliminary injunction (not appealed from) pending further proceedings by the Commission and until final hearing by the court. Held that a further order in the case restraining the defendant from prosecuting a suit of the character complained of which he subsequently began in a state court was in exercise of the power of the district court to protect its existing jurisdiction, and was not appealable under Jud.Code, § 266.

Appeal dismissed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
