In this article, Mr. Wright sets forth forcefully his belief that the Supreme Court of the United States has changed the Federal Employers' Liability Act from a negligence statute, based on the idea of no liability without fault, to a workman's compensation statute, based on the principle of liability regardless of fault. He urges congressional action to reverse the Court's treatment of the statute.
