According to CBC, the Federal Court of Appeal has upheld a ruling that found the courts have jurisdiction to determine the damages Canadian National Railway Co. must pay after breaching its service obligations to a Prairie grain shipping company during a bumper crop five years ago.

The case goes back to a complaint filed by Calgary-based Louis Dreyfus Commodities Canada Ltd. to the Canadian Transportation Agency.

Dreyfus said CN failed to provide enough rail cars to some of its grain elevators in Alberta and Saskatchewan to ship the record 2013-2014 grain crop.
