  • Wardwell v. Union Pacific R.R. Co.


  • At issue in this appeal is whether, in an action brought under the Federal Employers Liability Act (45 U.S.C. 51 et seq. (2006)), a defendant railroad may argue to the jury that a third party was the only person whose negligent conduct caused the plaintiffs injuries. For the reasons that follow, we hold that it may.
