The appeal court is moving prices jump the stamps forever


A federal appeal court succeeded in the 10% price rise recorded in the US Postal Postal stamp, which was alongside a San Francisco man who said the arbitrary boost was an inappropriate benchmark for increases in postage cost letter .

However, stamp prices are not falling – at least now.

The postal service, which reported a $ 2.3 billion third-quarter loss, said that it had partially increased by 5 per cent to 55 cent because it facilitated the cost of buying multi-camps easier than jumping 2-cent to 52 cent. But an un practiced solicitor named Douglas Carlson, who says he is a lifelong job enthusiast, challenged in December and continued the case alone.

“While the 5-cent stamp price may have been lost by many, ordinary people who opposed the taxation of most of the American Revolution,” wrote the US Circuit Judge Neomi Rao. in revitalizing your unanimous 26 pages. adopted in January. The court ruled that the increase was arbitrary and seriously.

The language was used by President Trump in Washington court this year, in his hat to Carlson, who works as registrar for UC San Francisco.

Carlson said he was satisfied with the ruling. He reiterated a lifelong interest in the postal service that grew out of great interest in how the job was processed and sorted, and then went to consumer rates, regulations and advocacy in the 1990s.

While he is fighting other battles with the service over times and times of mail collection, he said that Friday's control was “the biggest impact he had across the country.” T

The postal service could be a blow to the court decision, reported by 9 August that third quarter income from a first class job exceeded $ 98 million, a decrease of 1.6% on the same quarter last year.

The 5-cent increase was approved by the Postal Regulation Commission, which oversees the postal service and was partially created to ensure rate stability, predictability and "simplicity of structure". “A commission spokesperson said in an email that the commission is“ reviewing court order and co-ordination with the Department of Justice. ”

At this time, the new January rates of first-class customer will be charged, including 55 cents on Forever stamp, which confirmed a postal service spokesman on Friday.

Carlson argued that the Commission had made progress in approving a price increase of 5 cent instead of approving 2 cent, stating that the increase could be a default of 5-cent continuous increases.

Rather than raising the cost of a Forever stamp to 56 or 57 cent in the future, “the Postal Service is likely to remind the public of this plan and raise the price to 60 cents to maintain five individuals,” said Carlson. This would force individuals and small businesses to pay more than they might otherwise, and once they said, Carlson said.

The appeal court agreed, in concluding the commission failed to give an adequate explanation of the rate of increase and did not respond to the views of the public, including Carlson, in violation of the federal Administrative Procedure Act. , which governs the making of government rules. The panel also made excellent adjustments in relation to invalid postal rates.

Greg Katsas, US circuit judges, was taking part in Rao's opinion, also a Trump nominee, and Patricia Millett, then President Obama's choice.
