Robert J. Silva Appellant, v. United Services Automobile Association, Appellee, 382 F.2d 1021 (5th Cir. 1967)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 382 F.2d 1021 (5th Cir. 1967) October 26, 1967

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana; Herbert W. Christenberry, Judge.

Daniel A. McGovern, III, New Orleans, La., for appellant.

Richard C. Baldwin, Adams & Reese, New Orleans, La., for appellee.

Before GEWIN, BELL and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.


A jury verdict was rendered against appellant on the merits of his claim for damages which allegedly arose out of injuries sustained when he was struck by an automobile insured by appellee. The assignments of error are based on the action of the District Court in denying certain requested jury instructions. Each is devoid of merit.
