U.S. Supreme Court

Taylor v. Taylor, 232 U.S. 363 (1914)

Taylor v. Taylor

No. 224

Argued January 30, 1914

Decided February 24, 1914

232 U.S. 363


The Employers' Liability Act of 1908, as amended in 1910, supersedes all state statutes upon the subject covered by it, and the distribution of the amount recovered in an action for death of an employee is determined by the provisions of that act, and not by the state law. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

Page 232 U. S. 364

The source of right of the widow of an employee of an interstate carrier to maintain an action for his death is the federal statute, whether the cause of action is based on § 1 or § 9, and the father of the deceased is not entitled to share in the amount recovered.

The facts, which involve the construction of the Federal Employers' Liability Act of 1908 as amended in 1910, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
