Alphamate Commodity GMBH v. CHS Europe SA, 09-30804

In plaintiff's appeal from the district court's order vacating a maritime attachment, the order is vacated where the district court lacked maritime jurisdiction over the case because the parties' contracts for sales of grain were not wholly maritime, nor were the demurrage and detention charges suffered by plaintiff severable from the alleged breaches of their sales contracts.
