Facts of the case
In 1933, the state of California enacted the California Prorate Act. The Act restricted competition among producers in order to stabilize prices. Brown, a raisin producer, attempted to enjoin enforcement of the Act on the ground that he was sustaining irreparable economic injuries under the program because of its regulations on contracts.
Did the California Act violate the Commerce Clause?
