This cause came on to be heard on the transcript of record from the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and was argued.

ON CONSIDERATION WHEREOF, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that the judgment of the District Court is hereby affirmed.

Egypt Azov Shipping Co. appeals from Judge Chin's entry of a default judgment against them for their failure to comply with his discovery orders. We affirm for substantially the reasons set forth in Judge Chin's opinions. Nippon Fire & Marine Ins. Co. v. M.V. Egasco Star, 94 Civ. 6813(DC) (S.D.N.Y. Mar. 14, 1996); Nippon Fire & Marine Ins. Co. v. M.V. Egasco Star, 94 Civ. 6813(DC) (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 20, 1996); see also Nippon Fire & Marine Ins. Co. v. M.V. Egasco Star, 899 F. Supp. 164 (S.D.N.Y. 1995).

Because we affirm, we dismiss plaintiff's cross-appeal, Docket No. 96-7481, as moot.

A mandate shall issue forthwith.
