I posted last March about the ongoing litigation relating to a train derailment in Minot, North Dakota. The federal judge overseeing the suits has ruled (Download Lundeen.pdf) that the all of the claims in the state tort cases are preempted by the Federal Railroad Safety Act.
There's nothing earth-shattering but it's an interesting read.
(As I noted last March, I clerked for Judge Rosenbaum.)
