U.S. Supreme Court

Doyle v. Union Pacific Ry. Co., 147 U.S. 413 (1893)

Doyle v. Union Pacific Railway Company

Nos. 100, 101

Argued January 3, 1893

Decided January 23, 1893

147 U.S. 413


An agreement between a railroad company and an individual that the latter shall occupy a sectionhouse of the company and shall board there the sectionhands and other employees of the company at an agreed rate, the company to aid in collecting the payment out of the wages of the employees, does not create the relation of master and servant between the company and the individual, but does create a tenancy terminable at the will of the company.

In the absence of fraud, misrepresentation or deceit, a landlord is not responsible for injuries happening to his tenant by reason of a snow-slide or avalanche.

It is not reversible error in a judge of a federal Court to express his own opinion of the facts if the rules of law are correctly laid down and if the jurors are given to understand that they are not bound by such expressions of opinion.

The case is stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
