Decision in Tricolor Litigation

Thursday, January 05, 2006
The U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York ruled that the cause of the December 14, 2002 collision between the container ship KARIBA and the ro-ro car carrier TRICOLOR in the English Channel was the sole and exclusive fault of the KARIBA. In its decision, the court stated: “In short, it was not the Tricolor’s or Clary’s failure to act that was the cause; rather, the sole and exclusive cause of the collision was the Kariba’s turn to starboard.” The TRICOLOR and its owners were ably represented by lead counsel Chester D. Hooper, a partner in the firm of Holland & Knight LLP. In re Otal Investments Ltd , 03 Civ 4304 Source: HK Law
