American Car & Foundry Co. v. Brassert
Argued March 23, 1933
Decided May 8, 1933
289 U.S. 261
The statute limiting the liability of shipowners (R.S. 4283, 46 U.S.C. 183) is inapplicable to the case of the manufacturer of a vessel who has delivered it to a purchaser, retaining title merely to secure payment of the price, and who seeks protection against liability based on actionable negligence in the manufacture of the vessel. P. 289 U. S. 263.
61 F.2d 162 affirmed.
Certiorari, 288 U.S. 596, to review the affirmance of a decree dismissing a libel seeking limitation of liability.
