Burton v. West Jersey Ferry Co., 114 U.S. 474 (1885)

Burton v. West Jersey Ferry Company

Argued April 19, 1885

Decided April 20, 1885

114 U.S. 474


A general exception to a charge which does not direct the attention of the court to the particular portions of it to which objection is made raises no question for review by this Court.

The failure of a steam ferry company, engaged in transporting passengers for hire across a river, to provide seats enough for all is not negligence entailing liability for injury by accident unless it appears that a less number of seats was provided than was customary and sufficient for those who ordinarily preferred to be seated while crossing.

The facts which make the case are stated in the opinion of the court.
