Robert Marrero, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Victory Carriers, Inc., Defendant-appellee, 493 F.2d 1111 (5th Cir. 1974)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 493 F.2d 1111 (5th Cir. 1974) May 8, 1974

Newton B. Schwartz, Peter T. Steinmann, Houston, Tex., for plaintiff-appellant.

Ted C. Litton, Ben L. Reynolds, Houston, Tex., for defendant-appellee.

Before BROWN, Chief Judge, and THORNBERRY and AINSWORTH, Circuit Judges.


Marrero sued Victory Carriers for damages sustained when he was burned by scalding water from a hose he was operating on board one of defendant's vessels. The district court denied recovery on the basis that Marrero failed to prove negligence on defendant's part. Our examination of the record has not revealed that the lower court's findings were clearly erroneous. See Chaney v. City of Galveston, 5 Cir., 1966, 368 F.2d 774, 776.
