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.
