No. 706 (1974).

72 Wis.2d 478 (1976)

241 N.W.2d 421

UNITED STATES FIDELITY & GUARANTY COMPANY, and another, Plaintiffs-Respondents, v. FRANTL INDUSTRIES, INC., and others, Defendants and Third-Party Plaintiffs-Appellants: CRAWFORD, Third-Party Defendant-Respondent.

Supreme Court of Wisconsin.

Decided May 4, 1976.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

For the plaintiffs-respondents the cause was submitted on the brief of Donald C. Fellows and Wolfe, O'Leary, Kenney & Wolfe of Milwaukee.

For Theron Crawford there was a brief by Andrew O. Riteris, Jeffrey L. Abraham and Michael, Best & Friedrich of Milwaukee.


Three issues are presented on this appeal:

1. Was it error for the trial court to exclude testimony and jury instructions on the Wisconsin Administrative Code provisions on flammable liquids?

2. Did the trial court correctly restrict the special verdict inquiry on Crawford and the pipe company to whether he had ordered the welding operation?

3. Should the trial court have directed a verdict finding Republic free from negligence?...
