Honeycutt v. Norfolk Southern Railway Company

Kentucky Court of Appeals Decision Affirming Trial Court's Denial of Motion to Reinstate


The Trial Court dismissed a FELA Plaintiff's matter. Thereafter, former Plaintiff's Counsel sought to reinstate the matter. Counsel for NSRC objected, arguing there was no basis for reinstatement under the applicable Kentucky Rules and case law. Former Plaintiff and Plaintiff's Counsel appealed to the Kentucky Court of Appeals, which affirmed the Trial Court's decision, also finding the Trial Court had properly relied upon an unpublished opinion offered by NSRC's Counsel at the lower level.
