U.S. Supreme Court

Gilvary v. Cuyahoga Valley Railway Co., 292 U.S. 57 (1934)

P. 292 U. S. 59.

127 Ohio St. 402 affirmed.

Certiorari, 290 U.S. 622, to review the affirmance (by equal division) of a Judgment of the Court of Appeals of Ohio, which had reversed a recovery of damages from the Railway Company in an action based on personal injuries.
