Granger cases

Granger cases, 5 Supreme Court cases in 1877 that established a state's right, “Granger laws,” to regulate privately owned services affecting the public interest. The cases arose from the Granger movement, which aimed at curbing high prices imposed on farmers by railroads and grain processors. The first and most important Granger case was Munn v. Illinois, a landmark in U.S. law.
