McBride v. Toledo Terminal R. Co., 354 U.S. 517 (1957)
McBride v. Toledo Terminal Railroad Co.
Decided June 24, 1957
354 U.S. 517
In an action under the Federal Employers' Liability Act in an Ohio state court against respondent railroad, a jury awarded damages to petitioner for injuries sustained when his foot slipped off a ladder on the side of a boxcar. The trial judge entered judgment for the railroad, notwithstanding the verdict, on the ground that the evidence was not sufficient to support the verdict. A court of appeals reversed. The State Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the court of appeals and affirmed that of the trial court. On a petition to this Court for certiorari, held: certiorari is granted; the judgment of the State Supreme Court is reversed, and the cause is remanded.
166 Ohio St. 129, 140 N.E.2d 319, reversed and remanded.
