Filotei v. United States Steel Co.

decided: February 15, 1952.

JOSEPHINE FILOTEI
v.
UNITED STATES STEEL COMPANY, A CORPORATION FORMERLY CARNEGIE-ILLINOIS STEEL CORPORATION, APPELLANT.



Before GOODRICH and HASTIE, Circuit Judges and MODARELLI, Distirct Judge.

Per Curiam.

This is an appeal from a judgment in admiralty for the libellant in a suit for maintenance and cure. The sole question involved in the appeal is whether the libellant is entitled to retain the award for maintenance and cure made by the District Court. We think she is.

The respondent argues that libellant should have gone to the United States Marine Hospital in Pittsburgh for treatment and that her failure to do so prevents her from securing maintenance and cure. The short answer is that she had been discharged from that hospital. The respondent also argues that there is no evidence showing libellant's need for medical care during the period covered by the award. This is squarely contradicted by the trial judge's finding of fact No. 9 which is supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole.

The judgment is affirmed, 98 F.Supp. 174.
