St. Joseph & Grand Island Railway Company v. Moore

No. 573

Argued January 30, 1917

Decided March 6, 1917

243 U.S. 311


An action governed by the Federal Employers' Liability Act is not removable from the state to the federal court upon the ground of diverse citizenship.

Where there is substantial evidence of negligence to support the verdict in an action for personal injuries, this Court will not disturb the finding of a state court.

Under the Safety Appliance Act, 27 Stat. 531, c.196, as amended by the Act of March 2, 1903, 32 Stat. 943, c. 976, the duty to provide grab-irons or hand-holds on the ends, as well as on the sides, of locomotive tenders is an absolute duty which must be literally complied with, and claimed equivalents cannot satisfy the law.

268 Mo. 31 affirmed. .

The case is stated in the opinion.
