THE SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA


November 14, 1955

Appeal, No. 4, March T., 1956, from order of Court of Common Pleas of Westmoreland County, No. 2727, in case of City of New Kensington v. Municipal Authority of the City of New Kensington. Decree affirmed.

COUNSEL

Carl E. Glock, with him Gilbert J. Helwig, Albert S. Yoder, Robert D. McVey, Reed, Smith, Shaw & McClay, and Yoder & McVey, for appellant.

OPINION PER CURIAM

This is an appeal from the grant of a preliminary injunction against the defendant-appellant. The injunction was issued after the court had taken testimony of both parties. This is an unedifying example of each of two bodies claiming to represent the people in the same geographical subdivision. Under the law our review is very much limited, being confined to whether, under the facts before the court below, there were

[ 383 Pa. Page 184]

    reasonable grounds for its action: Roth v. Columbia Distributing Company, 371 Pa. 297, 305, 89 A.2d 825.

The court's action fully satisfies the foregoing rule, and we accordingly affirm the decree of the court below on the opinion of Judge BAUER, reported at 3 D. & C.2d 784; costs to abide the event.

Due to the importance of the cause, it is further ordered that the court below hold final hearing and render a decision thereon within sixty days from the date of filing of this opinion.
