U.S. Supreme Court

Ringhiser v. Chesapeake & O. Ry. Co., 354 U.S. 901 (1957)

Ringhiser v. Chesapeake & O. Ry. Co.

No. 844

Decided June 10, 1957

354 U.S. 901



The petition for certiorari is granted, and the judgment is reversed and the cause is remanded. The trial judge set aside the jury verdict for the petitioner because, inter alia, it was held that the respondent "had no duty to anticipate that a car was being used for such a purpose." There was evidence, however, as the trial court found, that to respondent's knowledge employees used gondola cars for the purpose. In that circumstance, there were probative facts from which the jury could find that respondent was or should have been aware of conditions which created a likelihood that the petitioner would suffer just such an injury as he did. Rogers v. Missouri Pacific R. Co., 352 U. S. 500; cf. Wilkerson v. McCarthy, 336 U. S. 53.

MR. JUSTICE FRANKFURTER is of the opinion that the writ of certiorari should not be granted. Since the writ has been granted, he would dismiss it as improvidently granted for the reasons set forth in his opinion in Rogers v. Missouri Pacific R. Co., 352 U. S. 500, 352 U. S. 524.

MR. JUSTICE CLARK, dissenting.
