CSX Transportation, Inc. v. McBride, 131 S.Ct. 2630 (2013)
Trying to cash in on a 3-Justice dissent from 2007, the railroad industry sought to increase the unique causation burden for plaintiffs in FELA cases. The Supreme Court reaffirmed the diminished burden recognized in Rogers v. Missouri Pacific Railroad Co., 352 U.S. 500 (1957). Michael Gross was co-counsel for the injured railroad worker in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit and in the Supreme Court.
