2. A release of rights under the Federal Employers' Liability Act is void when the employee is induced to sign it by deliberately false and material statements of the carrier's authorized representatives, made to deceive the employee as to the contents of the release. P. 342 U. S. 362.

3. In an action brought under the Federal Employers' Liability Act in an Ohio state court, which provides jury trials for cases arising under the Act, it was error for the judge to take from the jury the determination of the factual questions as to whether a release had been fraudulently obtained. Pp. 342 U. S. 362-364.
