U.S. Supreme Court

Louisville & Nashville Rd. Co. v. Parker, 242 U.S. 13 (1916)

Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company v. Parker

No. 330

Submitted November 1, 1916

Decided November 13, 1916

242 U.S. 13

Syllabus

Plaintiff's intestate was killed while moving an engine with attached intrastate car. There was evidence, strong but not conclusive, that the purpose of the movement was to reach and move another car in interstate commerce. Not asking to have this considered by the jury, defendant unsuccessfully insisted that the trial judge deal with the case as a case of interstate commerce governed by the Federal Employers' Liability Act. The case went to the jury as one dependent on the state law, and there was a money verdict which admittedly could not be sustained if the federal act applied.

Held that not the intrastate character of the moving car, as erroneously held by the court below, but the purpose of the operation involving the movement, must determine whether deceased was engaged in interstate commerce.

That the purpose was for the jury to determine, and defendant, not having sought the jury, or made any request or objection in the trial court which was not rightly overruled, could not complain of the verdict.

165 Ky. 65 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
