United States Court of Appeals Fourth Circuit. - 327 F.2d 82
Argued Jan. 17, 1964.Decided Jan. 21, 1964
Walter B. Martin, Jr., Norfolk, Va. (Vandeventer, Black, Meredith & Martin, Norfolk, Va., on brief), for appellant.
Augustus Anninos, Norfolk, Va. (Howell, Anninos & Daugherty, Norfolk, Va., on brief), for appellee.
Before SOBELOFF, Chief Judge, and BOREMAN and BRYAN, Circuit Judges.
This seaman, Demetrios Sykiotis, was a member of the crew of the SS DELPHIC EAGLE. In the course of his work, while at sea, he sustained a serious injury to his right hand, which ultimately resulted in the amputation of a portion of his middle finger. He brought a libel against the Master and the ship for the alleged failure to furnish him proper treatment. There was ample evidence to sustain the District Court's finding of liability and the award of $4,000.00 in his favor. We find no ground for disturbing the court's decree.
