U.S. Supreme Court

Schulz v. Pennsylvania R. Co., 350 U.S. 523 (1956)

Schulz v. Pennsylvania Railroad Co.

No. 282

Argued March 27-28, 1956

Decided April 9, 1956

350 U.S. 523


On the record in this case, a suit under the Jones Act to recover for the death of a tugboat fireman who disappeared while working at night on four unlighted, icy, and undermanned tugboats and whose drowned body was found later partly clothed and clutching a flashlight, the evidence was sufficient to go to the jury on the issues of whether respondent was negligent in failing to provide the deceased with a safe place to work and whether such negligence was the proximate cause of his death, and the trial court erred in directing a verdict for respondent. Pp. 350 U. S. 523-527.

222 F.2d 540, reversed.
