Jackson and Horvat Obtain Summary Judgment for Railroad Defendants

Burns White attorneys Jeff Jackson and Patrick Horvat were successful in obtaining summary judgment on behalf of Railroad Defendants, in the Circuit Court for Wicomico County, Maryland.

Plaintiff, a railroad conductor, alleged in his lawsuit that he developed bladder cancer as a result of exposure to a variety of substances during his railroad employment. However, we argued and the Court agreed that Plaintiff previously released his ability to pursue such a claim when he executed a Prior Release in a similar 2002 lawsuit. Following oral argument, the Court granted Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment and dismissed all claims.
