MULLIGAN SUIT AGAINST
RAILROAD NOW IN COURT
Lineman Seeks to Keeover f,0U
for Injuries Recelred at Union "
The trial of the personal Injury damage
suit In .which John Mulligan, a lineman.
is seeking to recover 60,000 damages from
the Union Pacific railroad, was begun In
the district court yesterday morning be
fore Judge O. D. Wheeler and a Jury.
The Injuries for which Mulligan Is seek'
Ing to recover damages were received last
December while working on the trolley
wiling which furnishes power to operate
the transfer table at the Union Pacific
shops in Omaha. An arm which reached
out from an Iron upright gave way while
Mulligan tvas working on It and he was
precipitated a distance of twenty-eight feet
to the bottom of ths turntable pit. He
suffered fractures of both arms and one
leg was so badly injured that amputation
was necesuary. On behalf of ths plaintiff,
it Is alleged that he was ordered out on
the arm when It was not of sufficient
strength to bear his weight snd that he
did not have any means of knowing Its
A peculiar feature of the case Is that
both the plaintiff and the defendant rail
way company are nonresidents of low
and also that the injuries complained of
by the plaintiff Occurred in snother state,
The action Is brought here to prevent the
railroad company from having it trans
ferred to the federal court, this being tm
possible where both parties are nonrest
dents of the state. Had the action been
brought In Omaha the railroad company
could have had it transferred to the United
RmtM court. The Iowa court Is able to
obtain Jurisdiction of the case for the
reason that the Union Pacific has three
miles of track in Pottawattamie county
and has an agent In Council Bluffs.
The plaintiff Is represented by Con
stantlns J. Smyth of Omaha and John M.
Galvln of this city, while Attornsy Crocker
of Omaha and George 8. Wright of this
city appear for the railroad.
