Date Decided: Mar 10th, 2011

Decided By: Ohio Southern District Court (Federal)

Court: United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio

Citation: 778 F.Supp.2d 821


Leandrew Lewis ("Lewis") filed suit against his employer CSX
Transportation ("CSX") under the Federal Employers' Liability Act ("FELA"), 45 U.S.C. 51 et seq. In the complaint,
Lewis alleged that throughout the course of his employment with CSX, he
sustained injuries to his wrists that led to carpal tunnel syndrome and that
the injuries were caused by CSX's negligence.

CSX answered by denying the allegations and filed a Motion
for Summary Judgment. CSX argues that Lewis' claim is barred by the statute of
limitations, and in the alternative, that Lewis lacks sufficient evidence to
succeed on the merits of his claim.
