Dennis v. Denver & Rio Grand Western R. Co., 375 U.S. 208 (1963)
Dennis v. Denver & Rio Grand Western Railroad Co.
Argued November 19, 1963
Decided December 9, 1963
375 U.S. 208
In this case arising under the Federal Employers' Liability Act, in which a jury awarded petitioner a verdict for damages for the loss of two fingers by frostbite after he had been required by his foreman to work outdoors in very cold weather, the evidence was sufficient to support the jury's conclusion that respondent railroad's negligence contributed to the injury, and the State Supreme Court erred in vacating the jury's verdict and ordering entry of judgment for respondent. Pp. 375 U. S. 208-210.
13 Utah 2d 249, 372 P. 2d 3, reversed and remanded.
