GAULT v. MODERN CONT'L/ROADWAY CONSTR. CO., INC., B152722
Because triable issues exist as to whether a pile driver aboard a barge was a "seaman," whether the channel is a "navigable waterway," and whether the barge is a "vessel in navigation," an employer was not entitled to summary judgment in claims for injury under the Jones Act.
