RE: question 4

Q: Characterize Erie as a "false conflict," if you can. Did either party argue that?

A:  I don't think either party argued Erie as a false conflict, but if I were to argue Erie as a "false conflict", New York's policy in seeking to promote railroad safety by holding railroad companies accountable for their negligence is not furthered by applying Pennsylvania law, which is only the fortuitous location of the injury.
