250 FEDERAL REPORTER
THE ALMORA. (Circuit Court of Appeals, Second Circuit. April 24. 1918.)
No. 251. Appeal from the District Court of the United States for the Eastern
District of New York. Libel by the Standard Oil Company, owner of the
steamship Muskogee, against the steamship Almora, claimed by A. H. Torb-
jarnsen. From a decree dismissing the libel, libelant appeals. Affirmed.
Kirlin, Woolsey & Hickox, of New York City (R. S. Erskine, of New York City,
of counsel), for appellant. Harrington, Bigham & Englar, of New York City
(T. Catesby Jones, of New York City, of counsel), for appellee. Before
HOUGH, Circuit Judge, and LEARNED HAND and MAYER, District Judges.
PER CURIAM. Decree affirmed with costs.
The opinion of Van Vechten Veeder, District Judge, in the lower court. was
as follows: The evidence leaves no doubt in my mind that the Almora was
properly moored, and that no neglect of any reasonable precaution may be at-
tributed to her. She broke loose in a hurricane, at a time when the wind
reached a velocity of 75 miles an hour. It seems to me to be a clear case
of inevitable accident. The libel is dismissed, without costs.
