RAILROAD APPELLATE

We also play a significant role in shaping railroad law at the appellate level, with successful results in the U.S. Supreme Court, the Eighth and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and Illinois and Missouri Supreme Courts and intermediate courts of appeal. We have briefed and argued many state and federal appellate cases that have had a lasting impact on railroad litigation, including a United States Supreme Court case rejecting the use of an official “approved” jury instruction in Missouri and a federal appellate court decision rejecting class action certification.
