Dickinson v. Stiles, 246 U.S. 631 (1918)

Dickinson v. Stiles

No. 735

Argued April 18, 19, 1918

Decided April 29, 1918

246 U.S. 631

Syllabus

There is no inconsistency between the Employers' Liability Act and the application to cases arising under it in the state court of a general state law giving the attorney a lien on his client's cause of action and rendering the defendant directly liable to the attorney.

Where this question was called to the attention of the state trial and supreme courts and discussed by the latter, upon an intervention of the attorney in an action wherein the complaint stated a case under the act, this Court has jurisdiction by writ of error to review the judgment sustaining the lien.

137 Minn. 410 affirmed.
