balcony door and stateroom door was opened and the wind tunnel effect opened the closet door violently onto my head, face and eye.

I went shopping at Wal-Mart last month and purchased a keyboard along with 3 other items. I went thru self checkout and paid for my items. Upon leaving the store an employee said something to me which I couldn't hear since I had headphones in watching a video. I walked to my car and headed home. 2... Read more »
At bottom of ticket, it states "no signature required pursuant to 32-1-4(a)", but that code appears to be stating that the violator would be deemed to have given a written Bond to appear, not waiving officers' need to sign the complaint. Violated Montg. Municipal Ord. 1-9 adopted 32-6-65
This was posted under Admiralty/Maritime, but I was unable to find anything under maritime laws pertaining to the listed statute(s). It looks like it involves violation of a Montgomery Municipal Ordinance. Consult with an Alabama attorney, as it probably requires a prompt response/appearance where...Read more »
The officer should call ahead and make arrangements for arrest once the vessel hits port in Hawaii. Arrests are fairly common upon arrivals. Also, during the period before reaching port the validity of the warrant can be confirmed. There are often mistakes in the system and the warrant must be...Read more »

As suggested by the owner of the marina stating that it would be more appealing when selling a boat. So now that boat its sold the marina's owner is no where to be found for me... Read more »
Depending on the size of the vessel, this can be a complex transaction that can involve state-specific laws in a number of different areas. It is something that needs to be discussed in detail with an attorney who practices in the jurisdiction. Good luck.

The registration of live births in America and throughout the former British Empire, most of Europe, is used not to simply record the birth of babies, but to name commercial "vessels" after those babies. This... Read more »
This does not appear to be something the average maritime practitioner dealing with ship collision, ship arrest, Jones Act, cruise ship, boating accident, or salvage cases would know about. A tax attorney might have deeper insight.
Sorry, but this does not sound like a maritime question. Also, the naming in issue did not come through. Please try trademark and copy write experts. Thank you and best regards. Tom Evans Maritime Lawyer Please see Justia disclaimer.
That reasonable care standard applied in maritime law is prevalent in tort law in general. If you have a case pending, your attorney could outline for you why the protection afforded by the standard is not a weak one, if it is examined thoroughly by an experienced maritime practitioner. If your...Read more »
In terms of templates, it could depend on the preferences of the Nevada broker handling the sale. While they could be similar in general characteristics and basic issues covered, templates could differ from broker to broker.
In October 2018, I sold my California LLC which only asset was a boat (wholly owned by my single owner/manager CA S corp). Licensed yacht brokers handled the sale through a maritime attorney. The deal was a straight up deal, llc for cash. The same maritime attorney represented both buyer and... Read more »
You are sailing in unchartered waters--at least for me. In addition, there are some important facts missing from you question that prevent lawyers from advising you. Finally, competent lawyers do not answer questions about what might happen in the future. Too many possibilities.
The degree of overhang could be a factor. If the smaller boat was moving, it's likely that it would be confronted by the argument that the other vessel was not moving. Maritime law applies a presumption that serves in favor of a non-moving vessel in encounters with moving vessels. The degree of...Read more »
