CASE ENTRY

Straub v. BNSF Railway Company

Enthusiasts of locomotive-engineer chairs rejoice at the Tenth Circuit’s 20-page opinion (complete with a photo) on whether injuries caused by one such chair give rise to strict liability on the part of the train company under the Federal Locomotive Inspection Act, an amendment to the Federal Employers’ Liability Act. For the vanishingly few of you who don’t want to read the opinion in full, the answer is: thumbs up to strict liability.
