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.. ____ Marina CUBUS Glass Betta KitHavana (Choco Brown) Horse (Full) Havana (Choco Brown) Horse (Full) Exion Stainless Steel Clinched Padded Breast Plate with Running Attachment and Stainless Steel Buckles Brown Elastic with Grey & Maroon Lines English Horse Riding Premium Tack Havan(2019) , to the effect that punitive damages are not recoverable. The  overwhelming historical evidence was against such damages being available in an action for unseaworthiness.

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 DIYthinker Christmas Elk New Year Winter Festival Anti-Slip Floor Pet Mat Square Home Kitchen Door 80Cm Gift.

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.

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.

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. 9 M(40-62cm) 9 M(40-62cm) Dog Vest Harness, Two-Piece Suit Chest Straps+Traction Leash Reflective for Teddy golden Retriever Small Medium Large Dogs Adjustable Safety Belt Pet Cat Supplies (color 9, Size M(40-62cm))KESS InHouse Suzanne Carter Reflections bluee White Digital Pet Bowl, 7 DiameterThe 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,Dublin Dog Co. 12.5 x 17 Wild Flower Collar, Medium, Fresh GuavaBrown M Brown M Motusamare Tactical Dog Collar Adjustable Military Training Collars with Control Handle Quick Release Metal Buckle 1.5 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, Brown full Brown full TATTINI Breastplate Elastic Ecothe parties commit to:As shown L As shown L Huayue Dog Clothes Cotton Pink Pet Vest Spring Top Pet Dog Costume Puppy Vest (color As Shown, Size L)Exo Terra Gecko Cave for Reptiles Medium “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.bluee Suede Octagonal Breathable Kennel Warm cat Litter pet Dog Bed Mattress (color bluee)Design Toscano Santorini Urns Cascading Table top Fountain Water Feature with LED Lights, Full color Realistic

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.

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. 1Pc White,Brown,Silver Tone Dots Pattern Nylon Dog Outdoor Walking Buckle Adjustable Chest Strap Rope Harness Leash7\ KESS InHouse Iris Lehnhardt Oceanic Teal bluee Pet Bowl, 7 Kess InHouse Strawberringo Mix Fleece Dog Bed, 50 by 60 , Hodge PodgeLast month a reading at a weather station in Hawaii recorded 415 parts per million of CO2 in the atmosphere.
