CSX Transportation, Inc. v. Healey, 16-2171

In an action for declaratory judgment it was determined that a Massachusetts law relating to sick leave benefits is preempted as it applies to railroad employees by the federal Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (RUIA). Affirming the district court's summary judgment, the case was returned to address further inquiries that arose during the appeals process regarding other areas of potential preemption and the possibility of severability in its application to railroad employees.
