Syllabus

In an action for personal injuries, the plaintiff alleged his employment as a worker in a specified department of defendant's plant and that, while so employed he suffered the injuries through inhaling gases etc. attributable to defendant's negligence. An amendment of the complaint broadened the description of the place of employment where the injuries were sustained so as to include another department located in another building of the same plant. Held, that the amendment did not introduce a new cause of action within the meaning of the New Jersey statute of limitations. P. 303 U. S. 199.

89 F.2d 456 reversed.
