American seamen have three avenues of recovery against a shipowner in respect of injuries sustained on board a ship: maintenance and cure; the Jones Act; a claim of unseaworthiness.

Punitive damages are available for the first of these, but not the second. The position as regards unseaworthiness was, until recently, unclear with a Circuit split on the issue. This has now been resolved by the Supreme Court’s decision in Dutra Group v Batterton ,588- U.S.. ____ Brown High Quality Genuine Leather Braided Dog Collar, 1 Wide.

The  overwhelming historical evidence was against such damages being available in an action for unseaworthiness. A  novel remedy could not be sanctioned unless it is re­quired to maintain uniformity with Congress’s clearly expressed poli­cies, C S(60X45X15CM) C S(60X45X15CM) Dog House Warm Pet Nest Dog Pad golden Retriever Fall Winter Dog Kennel Large Dog Bed Paw Print Cat NestBlack X-Small Black X-Small Waterproof Black Dog Coat Thick Vest Warm Padded Pet Dog Puppy Clothes Cotton Vest Coat,7 Sizes,Black-XSparticularly those in the Merchant Marine Act of 1920 (Jones Act), under which only compensatory damages were recoverable.A Pets Lead Hands Free Premium Running Dog Cat Leash Soft Barrel Handle Animals Training Leash Rope.

To allow punitive damages on unseaworthiness claims would create bizarre disparities in the law. First, a mariner could make a claim for punitive damages if he was injured onboard a ship, but his estate would lose the right to seek punitivedamages in a wrongful death action if he died from his injuries.

It’s not often that we can say “You read it first on the IISTL blog.” But it seems we may be able to, following the decision of the Court of Appeal (Males, Rose and Haddon-Cave L.JJ.) in 3 8\ Yellow Dog Design Argyle Purple Dog Leash 3 8 Wide and 5' (60 ) Long, X-Large.

The facts briefly recap thus. A charterer signed a CoA promising to come up with vast cargoes of Brazilian iron ore that would have netted the shipowner profits of something like $20 million. It didn’t, and in hindsight it was abundantly clear that it it never could have. Andrewex wooden fence, privacy, garden fence, fencing panel 180 x 180, varnished, brownJolly Pets Romp-N-Roll Ball 6 blueeberryThe contract was subject to a force majeure clause including floods preventing performance. Floods duly materialised; but (as was held both at first instance and on appeal) the charterer couldn’t invoke the clause, since if it had never had any cargoes in the first place the floods hadn’t prevented it doing anything. Nevertheless Teare J Chewy Express Retractable Dog Leash Walking Dog Lead for Dogs up to 110 lbs (50 kgs) Easy One-Finger Lock Control and Reflective Lead Red 1 Pack Buckle-Down DLS-W30199-W American Flag Diagonal Leash Splitter, 1.5 Wide 30 LengthExo Terra Compact Incandescent Fixture for PT2610 PT2612, Mediumthat even though there was breach the damages were not $20 million, but zilch (or rather nominal). His argument was that, hindsight having shown that the shipowner wouldn’t have had a right to performance even if the cargoes had been there, the value of the lost rights was zero.

We raised an eyebrow here at the idea that a defendant who hadn’t, and never could have, performed should be able to cut damages from $20 million to zero by pointing to a force majeure clause that might have protected him but in fact didn’t. Kess InHouse Pellerina Design Aztec Weave orange Purple Dog BedFidgetFidget Bed Hot Washable Cotton Kennel Dog Nest Puppy Pet House Warm Cushion Pad MatThe Court of Appeal has now made it clear that it thinks the same way, and substituted an award of $20 million. If (it was said) a claimant showed that a defendant had failed to perform and the defendant could not invoke any exculpatory provision, there was no reason why damages should not be substantial. The reasons behind the non-performance were irrelevant,Buckle-Down DL-6FT-W31848 Route 66 Highway Sign Stripe bluee White Red Dog Leash, 6'Lightbluee Zll Pet Stroller Puppy Pram Dog Travel Pushchair Outdoor Jogger Foldable 4 Wheels Trolley Pets carrier max loading 15 kg,Lightbluee as was the fact that had the defendant been able to perform in the first place he would have had an excuse.

In our view, despite the beguiling advocacy of the Institute’s own Simon Rainey QC, this is sensible and logical. Males LJ hit the nail on the head at [89] when he pithily pointed out that the breach was not inability or unwillingness to supply cargoes, but the simple fact that the cargoes, for whatever reason, were not there. Put that way, everything neatly falls into place. If you don’t perform your contract and can’t point to any excuse, you are liable for substantial damages. End of story.

Last year we reported on two judicial review challenges to government policy on climate change, one in the Netherlands, the other in the UK.

The Netherlands challenge brought by Urgenda resulted in an order that that the Netherlands State be ordered to achieve a reduction so that the cumulative volume of Netherlands greenhouse gas emissions would be reduced at least by 25%, by the end of 2020, relative to 1990 levels. The Netherlands State appealed against the order and the Dutch Supreme Court heard the case on 24 May 2019 and a judgment is expected over the summer.

The UK challenge was brought by Plan B and sought judicial review of the UK government’s decision not to amend the 2050 target in the Climate Change Act 2008 in the light of article 2(1) (a) the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change, which the UK has ratified, E 98X68X21CM E 98X68X21CM GZDXHN Dog House Four Seasons Universal Kennel Outdoor Two-Sided Flip Removable Kennel Waterproof Fabric Solid color Kennel Pet Nest Cat Nest Pthe parties commit to:Anti Barking Device, Adjustable Ultrasonic Outdoor Dog Repellent Safe for Small Medium Large Dogs, Sonic Bark Deterrent, Bark Control DeviceHunter 4239-42-4500 NCAA Mississippi University Too Cute Pet Dress, X-Large “Holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, recognising that this would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change.” The challenge failed and leave to appeal was rejected earlier this year.Leoie Glass Aquarium Fish Tank Filter Pump Net Fake Plant Stones Setgold-Plated Sterling Silver Memorial Gallery 3835gp Hammer 14K gold Sterling Silver Plating Cremation Pet Jewelry

Since then the UK Committee on Climate Change, in line with the findings of the IPCC in October 2018, has recommended a new emissions target for the UK of net-zero greenhouse gases by 2050. The previous target was to ensure that the net UK carbon account for the year 2050 (“the 2050 target”) is at least 80% lower than the 1990 baseline.

This is a ‘net’ figure, which allows for the ability to use international carbon credits to offset emissions within an appropriate monitoring, reporting and verification framework. In addition, under s.30(1) of the Act emissions from international aviation and shipping do not count as emissions from sources in the UK. Large Petique Hemp Eco-Friendly Mattress Cover for Pet Bed, Brown, LargeThe Government have said that they will review the ‘net zero’ target within 5 years to check that other countries are following suit, and, if not, reserve the right to revert to the original 80% target.

To stabilise at 1.5 degrees over pre industrial levels by 2100 the IPCC has stated that levels of CO2 in the atmosphere should not exceed 430 parts per million, and for stabilising at 2 degrees the levels should not exceed 450 per million.
