U.S. Supreme Court

Hartford Accident & Indem. Co. v. So. Pac. Co., 273 U.S. 207 (1927)

Hartford Accident & Indemnity Company v.

Southern Pacific Company

No. 45

Argued December 2, 1926

Decided February 21, 1927

273 U.S. 207


1. Where a shipowner sues in admiralty to limit his liability from negligent management of his vessel to the value of the vessel and pending freight, the proceeding does not necessarily terminate if his prayer is denied, but the Court may thereupon proceed to adjudicate all the claims coming from the accident, whether independently cognizable in admiralty or not, after the manner of a court of equity, and render judgment both in rem and against the owner in personam. P. 273 U. S. 213.

2. A stipulation ad interim in such proceedings takes the place of the vessel and freight, and even when the shipowner's application to limit liability is denied, the stipulator may be required to pay their value into court for application to allowed claims and costs. P. 273 U. S. 218.

3 F 2d 923 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
