U.S. Supreme Court

Chesapeake & Ohio Ry. Co. v. Carnahan, 241 U.S. 241 (1916)

Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company v. Carnahan

No. 743

Argued April 19, 20, 1916

Decided May 22, 1916

241 U.S. 241


Minneapolis & St. Louis R. Co. v. Bombolis, ante, p. 241 U. S. 211, followed to effect that the contention that, in trial of cases under the Employers' Liability Act, the parties are entitled under the Seventh Amendment to a common law jury of twelve men is untenable.

When the evidence shows that there will be future effects from an injury, an instruction which justifies their inclusion in the award for damages is not error.

Where the court explicitly enjoins the jury that there must be a proximate and causal relation between the damages and the negligence of the defendant and refers to the amount stated in the declaration as a limitation on the amount that can be awarded, and there is no misunderstanding as to the purpose of such reference, there is no error. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary

The facts, which involve the validity of a verdict and judgment for personal injuries under the Employers' Liability Act, are stated in the opinion.
