James Lee Farrow, Appellant, v. Grace Lines, Inc., Appellee, 381 F.2d 380 (4th Cir. 1967)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 381 F.2d 380 (4th Cir. 1967) Argued June 22, 1967
Decided July 18, 1967

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, at Norfolk; Walter E. Hoffman, Judge.

Calvin W. Breit, Norfolk, Va. (Amato, Babalas, Breit, Cohen, Rutter & Friedman, Norfolk, Va., on brief), for appellant.

R. M. Hughes, III, Norfolk, Va. (Seawell, McCoy, Winston & Dalton, Norfolk, Va., on brief), for appellee.

Before HAYNSWORTH, Chief Judge, and BRYAN and CRAVEN, Circuit Judges.


We think the District Court was well within its discretionary authority in refusing to set aside the verdict of the jury on the ground of inadequacy. The amount of the verdict was small, but within the range permitted by the testimony.
