Hargus v. Ferocious and Impetuous, LLC, 15-3635

In a negligence action against the owner and captain of a chartered vessel, for injuries plaintiff sustained while aboard the boat, the District Court's judgment in plaintiff's favor is vacated where the tortious act giving rise to plaintiff's claim was insufficient to invoke maritime jurisdiction because the act was not of the type that could potentially disrupt maritime commerce.
