Super 340 (1994), a suit to determine paternity for inheritance purposes, determination of whether existing evidence established paternity and whether three-year lapse of time since decedent’s death would preclude DNA testing were questions to be decided by trial court before motion to exhume body for DNA testing would be decided. Upon remand to the trial judge DNA buckle swabs of paternal grandparents and mother established paternity. In an admiralty case involving an explosion of a motor boat on the Ohio River resulting in severe personal injuries to the occupants, liability of the railroad which operated a trestle above was established through expert testimony based upon testing of the fragments taken from the injured parties and conclusion that a signaling device above dislodged and caused the injury.
