Railroad crossing case addresss railroad liabiltiy

In a recent Court of Appeals case, the Court agreed that the Railroad owed no duty of care to provide a flagman at a crossing with limited visibility. The Court held that only a state agency could require the railroad to deploy a flagman.   The Court did agree, however, that the railroad may have owed a duty to improve the visibility by addressing the vegetation surrounding the intersection.  The case is Estate of Bradley Cort v. Huron & E Ry.
