Masterson v. New York Central Railroad Co.

decided: May 5, 1959.

JOSEPH D. MASTERSON, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT,
v.
NEW YORK CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPANY, DEFENDANT-APPELLEE.



Before McLAUGHLIN, KALODNER and STALEY, Circuit Judges.

Per Curiam.

The only important question on this appeal is whether the request to charge res ipsa loquitur should have been granted.

Our own examination of the record completely satisfies us that Judge Willson correctly held in his opinion on the motion for a new trial that "The request for charge was refused because inconsistent with the allegations in the Complaint as well as inconsistent with the position taken by plaintiff and his experienced and able counsel throughout the trial and finally because not warranted by the evidence introduced during the trial." [169 F.Supp. 436.]

The judgment of the district court will be affirmed.
