Melinda Bialzik Stays On Track

Railroad law encompasses all legal matters that relate to railroad services. However, railroad law, as a specific area of law, doesn’t really exist. Instead, it is made up of various areas of law applied to railroads and trains.


Last week, Melinda Bialzik presented Update on Spoliation during the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel’s 2019 Special Litigation Conference held in Houston, TX, March 20-23. In the presentation, she highlighted a party’s duty to preserve evidence and defenses to claims of spoliation, as defined as “the destruction or significant alteration of evidence, or the failure to preserve property for another’s use as evidence in pending or reasonably foreseeable litigation.”


The National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel (NARTC) is a 64-year-old organization made up of the top railroad trial attorneys from across the United States and Canada. Membership in NARTC is limited to lawyers who handle litigation and/or related matters for railroads or their affiliated entities, or who handle litigation or other legal matters directly affecting railroads.
