U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 205 F.2d 834 (5th Cir. 1953) July 10, 1953

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana; Benjamin C. Dawkins, Judge.

A. R. Christovich, Jr., Christovich & Kearney, New Orleans, for appellee.

Before HOLMES, BORAH, and RUSSELL, Circuit Judges.

HOLMES, Circuit Judge.

In this case the injury occurred in Alabama, which is the only difference between it and the case of Weingartner v. Fidelity Mutual Insurance Company, 5 Cir., 205 F.2d 833. Therefore, upon the authority of the latter case and the Louisiana statute therein cited, the judgment appealed from, 104 F. Supp. 230, is affirmed.
