RONEY v. GENERAL STATE AUTHORITY. (01/07/64)

THE SUPREME COURT OF PENNSYLVANIA


January 7, 1964

RONEY, APPELLANT,
v.
GENERAL STATE AUTHORITY.

Appeal, No. 219, Jan. T., 1963, from judgment of Court of Common Pleas No. 1 of Philadelphia County, March T., 1961, No. 3460, in case of Paul M. Roney v. The General State Authority. Judgment affirmed.

COUNSEL

Gilbert I. Yaros, with him Norman Shigon, for appellant.

Edward W. Madeira, Jr., with him John B. H. Carter, for appellee.

Before Bell, C.j., Musmanno, Jones, Cohen, O'brien and Roberts, JJ.

[ 413 Pa. Page 219]

OPINION PER CURIAM

The issue presented on this appeal is whether the doctrine of governmental immunity applies to appellee, The General State Authority. In Rader v. Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, 407 Pa. 609, 182 A.2d 199 (1962), we held that the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission was an instrumentality of the Commonwealth engaged in a governmental function and hence immune from liability for the negligence of its employees. The reasoning of that case compels an identical result here.

Mr. Justice MUSMANNO dissents.

Disposition

Judgment affirmed.
