ENTRY ON DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT - For the reasons stated above, the Court GRANTS in part and DENIES in part Defendant Norfolk Southern Railway Co.'s Motion for Summary Judgment (Filing No. 65 ), and the Court DENIES Plaintiffs' Motion for Leave to File Surreply ( Filing No. 82 ). The Court concludes that a genuine issue of material fact remains regarding whether federal funds were used to install crossbuck signs at the Crossing and whether conducting t he air brake test at the Crossing, rather than at Rydman & Fox bean facility, amounts to the cause of Plaintiffs' injuries. Accordingly, the issues remaining for trial are: 1) whether federal funds were used to install crossbuck signs at th e Crossing; 2) whether Norfolk acted negligently when failing to train its crew members on Rule 123 of Norfolk's operating rules; and 3) whether Norfolk acted negligently in conducting the brake test at the Crossing. (See Entry.) Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 4/11/2017. (JLS)
