The plaintiffs appeal from a judgment for the defendant, based upon a jury's verdict, in an action for personal injuries alleged to have been caused by negligence in the operation of the defendant's store. We find no error affecting substantial rights. Cf. Brown v. Capital Transit Co., 75 U.S.App.D.C. 337, 338, 127 F.2d 329, 330, certiorari denied, 1942, 317 U.S. 632, 63 S.Ct. 61, 87 L.Ed. 510.
