Cargo Damage in Transit - Federal Law Governs

Feb 1, 2013 — by Jeff Mundy
Tags: Commercial Law

Congress intended for the Carmack Amendment to provide the exclusive cause of action for loss or damages to goods arising from the interstate transportation of those goods by a common carrier. Accordingly, we hold that the complete pre-emption doctrine applies. Because the Carmack Amendment provides the exclusive cause of action for such claims, . . . claims [for such loss or damages] "only arise under federal law and [can], therefore, be removed . . . ."   (to federal court)
