The liability of the lessor of a truck for personal injuries to a third party, in its operation, due to lessor's breach of a duty to maintain it in safe condition, depends upon the lex loci delicti. Erie Railroad v. Tompkins, ante p. 304 U. S. 64.

Certiorari granted; 94 F.2d 193 reversed.

Petition for certiorari to review a judgment affirming a recovery in an action for personal injuries, which had been removed from a state court.

PER CURIAM.

Respondent brought this suit to recover damages for personal injuries alleged to be due to the defendants' negligence. He was struck by a truck which was operated without proper equipment, in that it had no horn or other signaling device. He sued the driver and also the person who had leased the truck to the driver's employer upon the ground that the lessor who charged with the duty of maintaining the truck in a reasonably safe condition.

Judgment against both defendants was affirmed by the Circuit Court of Appeals. The court treated the question of the liability of the lessor as one of general law. The court should have applied the law of Missouri where the injury occurred. Erie R. Co. v. Tompkins, ante, p. 304 U. S. 64. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
