US Supreme Court

Comments Off

On May 15, 2006, the U.S. Supreme Court accepted review in the case of NORFOLK SOUTHERN RAILWAY CO. V. SORRELL :170 S.W.3d 35 CA-MO, E. Dist; limiting the review to whether the court below erred in determining that the causation standard for employee contributory negligence under the Federal Employers Liability Act (“FELA “) differs from the causation standard for railroad negligence.

The American Association of Railroads has been permitted to file an amicus brief. I believe this case is the first FELA case for the newly consituted Roberts court.
