Description: Court Finds in Favor of RR vs. John Smalley

Date: May 14 1886

Newspaper published in: Tupelo, MS

Page/Column: Page 2, Column 3

JOHN SMALLEY brought suit against the Illinois Central Railroad in the federal court at Jackson, Tenn., for $28,000 damages on account of injuries received in a collision on the road. The case was tried last week and decided in favor of the railroad, which then of its own free will and accord paid Smalley $1,000 and also assumed the payment of all the costs of the suit. Who will say that all railroads are soulless corporations?
