In re: Norfolk Southern Rwy. Co., No. 09-2210
In a Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) action based on plaintiff's injury while working on a railroad terminal, the district court's order remanding the action is affirmed where plaintiff's duties were completed before the rail car loading process began, and thus he did not meet the status requirement of the Longshore Act and his claims did not arise under federal law.
