gCaptain won’t allow the entire text of the 23 page order to be published on the forum because it has more characters (it’s bigger than the rather low limit ) set for gCaptain.
Most U.S. District Court orders are “unpublished,” (which means that they do not create a precedent, cannot be cited by lawyers in other cases, and will not appears in the Fed Supp. Case books), but the orders will usually be available in the court’s docket on PACER, the court system’s subscription service. I don’t have a PACER subscription. They will also be available with a paid subscription on Westlaw and Lexis, but I don’t have subscriptions to those either.
I searched Findlaw, a free to the pubic legal service, but could not find the order there.
A friend with a paid subscription thought I might be interested in the case, so he emailed the text of order to me. So I don’t have a link to the order. I just have the text.
@Kennebec_Captain posted an article from Maritime Executive that is apparently about the case. But I have not yet followed the link or read that article.
@shipengr. Do you have anymore smartass comments? If so, just put them where the sun doesn’t shine.
At this point, I wish I had not even bothered to create the topic.
