Maryland FELA Appellate Decision

The Maryland Court of Appeals reinstated a wrongful death accident lawsuit today, finding in a 6-1 opinion that a Baltimore City trial judge erred in failing to give an instruction on the inapplicability of assumption of the risk in FELA cases. The case involved a man who was killed when the mounted roof of his work vehicle came into contact with an energized wire.

I just took a quick look at the opinion. I will write more here if I find anything of particular interest.
