In Re Complaint of Buchanan Marine, L.P., 16-1092

Affirming the district court's decision to dismiss the case of a barge worker claiming under the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, NY, and maritime law for injuries sustained while working on a barge and grant a complaint for exoneration of liability pursuant to the Limitation of Liability Act because the court correctly held that the worker, who inspected and maintained mooring barges, was not a 'seaman' for the purpose of the Jones act, but also vacating and remanding because the court erred in dismissing certain claims against the owner of the barge and operator of the facility
