Judgment on Appeal Affirmed by U.S. Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in favor of the owners of a tanker vessel involved in a major oil spill in the Port of Philadelphia. In a 7-2 majority decision, the Supreme Court upheld a $143 million damage award (primarily oil spill cleanup costs) to the vessel owner interests against the defendant petroleum terminal.  $88 million of the award was allocated to the United States, which had earlier reimbursed the vessel owner interests that amount under provisions of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.

Represented Not-For-Profit in Settlement Dispute

Represented a not-for-profit client in a complaint brought in Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court regarding funds paid to the client as part of an earlier settlement. The client and its board of directors were sued by a Pennsylvania state agency alleging the funds had not been spent or loaned out in accordance with the terms of the settlement agreement. On initial motions, the Court determined that the matter should be treated as an original jurisdiction complaint as opposed to an action to enforce the agency’s earlier decision, resulting in a more favorable evidentiary standard for the client.
