U.S. Supreme Court

Eichel v. New York Central R. Co., 375 U.S. 253 (1963)

Eichel v. New York Central R. Co.

No. 480

Decided December 16, 1963

375 U.S. 253


In this suit by petitioner under the Federal Employers' Liability Act to recover damages for a permanently disabling injury resulting from respondent's negligence, the jury returned a verdict of $51,000 for petitioner, and the District Court entered judgment accordingly. The Court of Appeals reversed on the ground that the District Court had committed prejudicial error in excluding evidence that petitioner was receiving a disability pension of $190 per month under the Railroad Retirement Act of 1937.

Held: The District Court properly excluded the evidence of disability payments. Pp. 375 U. S. 253-256.

319 F.2d 12 reversed and remanded.
