CSX Transp., Inc. v. McBride, 10–235

In a dispute concerning the appropriate causation instruction to give the jury in a claim under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), judgment of the appeals court is affirmed where consistent with the FELA’s text and purpose, Rogers v. Missouri Pacific R. Co., and the uniform view of the federal appellate courts, FELA does not incorporate stock proximate cause instruction standards developed in nonstatutory common-law tort actions.
