The New York Times reported on the U.S. Supreme Court case of UNITED STATES v. SOUTH-EASTERN UNDERWRITERS ASS'N et al.
No. 354.

In the words of the Supreme Court,

"The record, then, presents two questions and no others: (1) Was the Sherman Act intended to prohibit conduct of fire insurance companies which restrains or monopolizes the interstate fire insurance trade? (2) If so, do fire insurance transactions which stretch across state lines constitute 'Commerce among the several States' so as to make them subject to regulation by Congress under the [322 U.S. 533, 539] Commerce Clause? Since it is our conclusion that the Sherman Act was intended to apply to the fire insurance business we shall, for convenience of discussion, first consider the latter question."
