  • Jaffrey P.Lafferty v.Norfolk Southern R

    Case Name: Jeffrey P. Lafferty v. Norfolk Southern Railway Co.
    Date Decided: November 12, 2009

    Court:
    U.S.D.C Northern District of Ohio
    Judge: Judge Katz
    Citation: 2009 WL 3817603 (N.D.Ohio)


    Background:
    Plaintiff, Jeffrey Lafferty (“Laffery”) brought this action under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (“FELA”) against defendant Norfolk Southern Railway Company (“NSRC”), his former employee. Lafferty sought partial summary judgment against NSRC on the issue of liability and comparative fault.


    At the time of injury Lafferty was employed as a freight conductor for NRSC. During a routine trip another employee informed Lafferty one of the cars was throwing sparks. The engineer brought the train to a stop and upon investigating the cause of sparking, Lafferty slipped while climbing a rail car and dislocated his ankle severely enough to preclude him from further work as a train conductor.
