U.S. Supreme Court

Goslee v. Shute, 59 U.S. 18 How. 463 463 (1855)

Goslee v. Shute

59 U.S. (18 How.) 463


In a collision which occurred upon the Mississippi River between an ascending and descending steamboat, whereby the former was destroyed, the collision was chiefly owing to the neglect, by the ascending boat, of the rule which requires the ascending boat to keep near the right bank and the descending one to keep near the middle of the river.

Moreover, the ascending boat had not a sufficient watch, and in other respects its officers were to blame.

The facts of the case are stated in the opinion of the Court.

The district court held that both boats were in fault, and divided the damages and ordered judgment to be entered against The Magnolia for $17,900. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
