That express companies cannot escape regulation by the interstate commerce commission on the ground that they are joint stock associations instead of corporations, was decided by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of the Adams Express Company, which successfully resisted a suit brought by the government in the southern district of Ohio charging the company with violating the interstate commerce act. The statute in prohibiting certain practises, mentions "corporations" as being forbidden to engage in them, and the express company took refuge behind the fact that it was not a corporation. "It has been notorious for years," said Justice Holmes, who delivered the opinion, "that some of the great express companies have been organized as stock companies for the express reason, it seems, to evade this law." Pointing out that it was clearly the intent of Congress originally to include express companies, Justice Holmes added that if there were any doubt as to the original intent to include them, it had been removed by subsequent amendments to the law, which have applied it specifically to express companies.
