Rule of conflict

The conflict in this case was whether the injured P. should be considered a trespasser or not in order to determine the duty owed by the D. (Pa. law- trespasser, NY law- not).
     The other conflict is whether Swift should be overturned and whether the federal courts sitting in diversity should be required to apply state laws, including case decisions.
     Erie says that federal courts sitting in diversity are required to apply state case made law.
