Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 218 F.2d 823 (3d Cir. 1955) Argued January 19, 1955
Decided January 31, 1955

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; Thomas J. Clary, Judge.

Samuel B. Fortenbaugh, Jr., Philadelphia (Clark, Ladner, Fortenbaugh, & Young, Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief), for appellant.

Leslie C. Krusen, Philadelphia, Pa., (Krusen, Evans & Shaw, Philadelphia, Pa., on the brief), for appellee.

Before McLAUGHLIN, KALODNER and HASTIE, Circuit Judges.


In this maritime collision case, the district court in a carefully considered decision found the appellant solely to blame. Our own examination of the record satisfies us that this finding is supported by substantial evidence. The decree of the district court, 121 F. Supp. 255, will be affirmed. McAllister v. United States, 348 U.S. 19, 75 S. Ct. 6.
