Argued January 4, 1924
Decided February 18, 1942
264 U.S. 90
The objection that a vessel owned, possessed, manned, and operated by a foreign state but engaged in ordinary commerce under charter to a private trader is immune to libel in the district court for services and supplies cannot be raised by her master, who, although a naval officer, is not functioning as such, and is not shown to have authority to represent his sovereign in making the objection. P. 264 U. S. 94.
296 F. 567 affirmed.
Appeal from a decree of the district court sustaining a libel against a ship, for services and supplies.
