Texas judiciary on-line
London arbitration found that charterer
had failed to provide a safe berth.
This Texas court judgement up-held the finding
which had been challenged on technical grounds.
Is machinery damage cause of ramming?
The arbitration seems to say no,
but CTX has not seen the arbitration report.
Need more info.
Judgement talks about the cargo being condensate.
So why was the spill from 2S bunkers?
