SAKG Attains Favorable Judgment in Eighth Circuit Appeal

On May 1, the United States Court of Appeals affirmed a favorable judgment for SAKG client BNSF Railway Company. The three-judge panel rejected the plaintiff’s arguments that the trial court erred when it instructed the jury in a Federal Employers’ Liability Act (“FELA”) case premised on an alleged violation of the Safety Appliances Act. The case was briefed and argued by SAKG attorneys Scott Ast, Jeff Kennard, and Michele Sutton. A copy of the opinion can be downloaded by clicking here.
