Railroad Worker Injury Clash Draws U.S. Supreme Court Review

The U.S. Supreme Court agreed to consider tightening the standards for lawsuits by railroad- industry workers who blame their company for injuries they suffered on the job.

The justices today said they will hear a CSX Corp. unit’s bid to overturn a $184,250 award to a locomotive engineer who says the company is responsible for a hand injury he suffered during a day at the helm of a train.
