Where a plaintiff who was injured while working on railroad tracks sued the railroad, summary judgment for the railroad defendant is affirmed because the plaintiff was not a formal employee of the railroad and did not show that he was a borrowed or dual servant because his formal employer was the sole entity with the right to control his work, and the plaintiff also did not show that the defendant owed a duty to warn of the well-known dangers of rip rap, so the negligence claim failed as a matter of law.
Judgment is affirmed.
