Lugenbuhl congratulates Stewart F. Peck and David B. Sharpe on the publication of their co-authored article, “What is a Vessel?: Implications for Marine Finance, Marine Insurance, and Admiralty Jurisdiction” in the June 2015 edition of the Tulane Law Review.
The article was delivered at the 2015 Tulane Admiralty Law Institute, and focuses on case law following the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2013 decision in Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach and sectors within the maritime field – marine finance, marine insurance, and admiralty jurisdiction – to illustrate some of the problems and unintended consequences introduced by Lozman’s “reasonable observer” test for “vessel” status. The authors also propose that the Coast Guard be deemed a “reasonable observer” under certain circumstances.
As published by the Tulane Law Review, the article is cited as: 89 Tulane L. Rev. 1103 (June 2015).
