Has the US Navy trademarked the word “navy” ? Is it possible to use the word ”navy“ (referencing the color) in a business name in combination with other words? It is for a design industry business and in no way related to anything military. I would hate to name my business only to have it... Read more »
Your question awaits a response for a week. There aren't really any admiralty/maritime law issues here, and that may have overshadowed the IP attributes of your straightforward question. There's no guarantee that every question is picked up, but you might have better chances of a response...Read more »
This is posted under Admiralty/Maritime, but I am not able to cross-reference any federal maritime statutes under those letters and digits. If it is a case citation, one possibility is Moorish National Republic Federal Government #AA222141 et al v. US Department of State et al, US District Court...Read more »
A South Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a GENERAL matter, states impose licensing or safety certifications when vessels are mechanically powered or for personal watercraft. But each state's requirements could be different, which is why...Read more »
I've been in that boat! Had to fix it myself. If you believe that the seller knew of the dangerous condition but did not reveal it and actively concealed it, you may have been defrauded. Small Claims jurisdiction is up to $10.000. If you hire an attorney, you will be pouring more money...Read more »
It looks like some of the other ordinary resources that post UCC 9-105 (Control of Electronic Chattel - Paper) do not include them. You posted under Admiralty/Maritime - I checked but could not find cross references under ordinary maritime laws I work with. The attorneys familiar with banking...Read more »
I'm sorry for your ordeal. Contact a maritime attorney who handles injury cases without delay. Boat fires, particularly on small vessels on navigable waters, can introduce legal tactics that are not available for accidents that take place on land. Good luck
Depending on the type of lien, that could be a strong measure. There are sometimes less expensive ways for facilities to pursue debts. A starting point could be to contact a California attorney to examine the lien and advise you accordingly. Good luck
I am assisting a friend that allows boat storage on his property. He has 2 boats that have been on his lot for over 24 months with no contact by the boat owners. What statutes or procedures address contacting the owners and or seizing the boats absent payment of the back rent. There is no... Read more »
You must look into Alaska state law for available remedies. If the contract was purely for land storage and no maritime services were rendered, maritime law would not apply and the land owner may not seize (or arrest) the vessel in federal court under admiralty procedures....Read more »
If you are talking about an FAC and a plea, this sounds like it might be closer to criminal law than maritime law (unless there are facts not mentioned that would be relevant for the Admiralty/Maritime category). Since time is of the essence in your matter, you might have better chances of a prompt...Read more »
All of a sudden The shelter island that started requiring that all my belongings and my persons be searched by one of their security guards before entering the premises this is my legal residence address on my ID and I have to be searched before I come home that doesn't seem legal to me and...

I don't think think so. You are a guest of the property owner, who can set whatever limits they want on those persons they allow to reside on their property. You say it is a shelter. So the owners apparently want to assure themselves that no guests can bring any kind of contraband onto their...Read more »
This doesn't really look like an Admiralty/Maritime law matter. It sounds like something involving a determination that could be made under any number of guidelines, whether incapacitated for purposes of health care law, a disability claim, enrollment for special education programs,...Read more »
Your question would be best handled by an Alabama attorney familiar with state boating laws. But you await a response for two weeks. You will need to check with an Alabama attorney familiar with these boating laws or Alabama officials involved with the law. The law you mention is very region...Read more »
Were there admiralty/maritime elements to your question not mentioned here - you posted under Admiralty/Maritime, and in that area, commercial seafarers are being confined to vessels in many parts of the world due to the health crisis, with crew rotations and vessel disembarking being virtually...Read more »
If I don’t the Union will not “clear” me to work. Amid the Covid-19 outbreak I have asked if the Union has designated “local” areas in my Home State where we can complete annual physicals while reducing the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19. Their answer was no, and that there... Read more »
The maritime unions are dealing with some extraordinary measures in light of this virus, particularly for vessels operating in the Pacific. There have been newly implemented measures involving restriction of crews to vessels, cessation of crew rotations, etc. Given the current atmosphere, unions...Read more »
