No. 236

Argued October 5, 6, 1926

Decided October 18, 1926

272 U.S. 50

Syllabus

Within the meaning of the Merchant Marine Act of June 5, 1920, which gives to seamen a right of action for damages at law for personal injuries and, by adoption of statutes modifying or extending common law right and remedies of railway employees, does away with the fellow servant doctrine in such case, the term "seamen" is to be taken to include stevedores when engaged in the maritime work of stowing cargo. P. 272 U. S. 51.

134 Wash. 235 affirmed.

Certiorari (269 U.S. 549) to a judgment of the Supreme Court of Washington which sustained a judgment against the petitioner, a stevedoring company, in an action at law brought by one of its employees for injuries sustained while stowing freight in a vessel.
