APPEAL FROM THE CIRCUIT COURT OF

THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA

Syllabus

If a ship be at anchor, with no sails set, and in a proper place for anchoring, and another ship, under sail, occasions damage to her, the latter is liable.

But if the place of anchorage be an improper place, the owners of the vessel which is injured must abide the consequences of the misconduct of the master.
