CLAYTON WARD v. ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD COMPANY (Tenn. Ct. App. January 20, 2011)
Plaintiff, a railroad employee, filed this lawsuit pursuant to the Federal Employers' Liability Act, alleging that his left ankle injury was caused by his working conditions. The railroad filed a motion for summary judgment based upon the three-year statute of limitations. The trial court denied the motion for summary judgment but subsequently granted the railroad's motion for permission to seek an interlocutory appeal. We granted the railroad's application for an interlocutory appeal and now affirm the trial court's decision to deny the motion for summary judgment.
