Hahn v. Ross Island Sand & Gravel Co., 358 U.S. 272 (1959)

Hahn v. Ross Island Sand & Gravel Co.

No. 52

Argued December 11, 1958

Decided January 12, 1959

358 U.S. 272


Petitioner was injured while working on a barge used in connection with the dredging of and and gravel in a lagoon opening into a navigable river. His employer had rejected the State Workmen's Compensation Act, which provide that, in such cases, an injured employee may maintain in the courts a negligence action for damages. Petitioner brought such an action in a state court.

Held: Though his employer had accepted its coverage, nothing in the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act prevents petitioner from recovering in the state court. Pp. 358 U. S. 272-273.

214 Ore. 1, 320 P.2d 668, reversed and cause remanded.
