The United States District Court Judge Frederick Block enforced NTSB's subpoena and ordered Michael Gansas, the master of the M/V Andrew J. Barberi, to appear tomorrow for an NTSB interview. "We are gratified by the Court's decision today," said NTSB Chairman Ellen G. Engleman. "We are aggressively pursuing safety and using every tool at our disposal. We will continue to ensure a complete and thorough investigation. I also want to personally thank the United States Attorney's Office in Brooklyn for their prompt and able assistance." NTSB began investigating the tragic accident involving the Staten Island ferry, Andrew J. Barberi, within hours after it struck a pier, killing 10 passengers, and injuring 70 others.
