Manhattan By Sail, Inc. v. Tagle, 16-607

Vacating the district court's judgment in favor of the owners of a sailing vessel sued by a woman who was injured when a deckhand lost control of a weighted halyard that hit her in the head because the district court's ruling that the plaintiff failed to show negligence or entitlement to the application of res ipsa loquitur because a seaman can lose control of a line without negligence was in error and the court should have found negligence occurred based on the evidence.
