U.S. Supreme Court
Great Northern Ry. Co. v. Knapp, 240 U.S. 464 (1916)
Great Northern Railway Company v. Knapp
Argued February 24, 1916
Decided March 20, 1916
240 U.S. 464
Where there is no question as to the interpretation of the Employers' Liability Act or as to the definition of legal principles in its application, but the question is simply whether there were matters for determination of the jury, this Court, with due regard to the appropriate exercise of its jurisdiction, will not disturb the decision of the court below unless error is palpable.
In cases of this sort arising under the Employers' Liability Act, not being
of exceptional character, this Court confines itself to the mere announcement of its conclusion, as it does, in this case, of affirmance.
130 Minn. 405 affirmed.
The facts, which involve the validity of a verdict and judgment in suit for personal injuries under the Federal Employers' Liability Act, are stated in the opinion.
