U.S. Supreme Court

Illinois Central R. Co. v. Peerry, 242 U.S. 292 (1916)

Illinois Central Railroad Company v. Peerry

No. 77

Argued November 7, 8, 1916

Decided December 18, 1916

242 U.S. 292


Plaintiff was a conductor in charge of a train service south and north between two stations in Kentucky, established chiefly because of southbound traffic, which was more certain than the northbound and generally included freight bound beyond the state. The trips south and back were, however, distinct, and all freight obtainable was taken, either way. Having made the southward journey, carrying interstate freight, plaintiff was injured while returning with the same engine, caboose, and crew, and with local freight only, and while writing his report for the round trip. Held that the plaintiff was not employed in interstate commerce when injured, and the case therefore was not within the Federal Employers' Liability Act.

128 Minn. 119 reversed.

The case is stated in the opinion.
