Byberg v. Standard Oil Co.

decided.: May 24, 1955.

HAROLD J. BYBERG, LIBELANT-APPELLANT,
v.
STANDARD OIL COMPANY OF NEW JERSEY, RESPONDENT-APPELLEE. GUILLERMO H. REYES, LIBELANT-APPELLANT, V. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, RESPONDENT-APPELLEE.



Before CLARK, Chief Judge, MEDINA, Circuit Judge, and DIMOCK, District Judge.

Per Curiam.

Each of these cases involves the validity of a release signed by a seaman, and in each the trial judge, by the application of proper standards, Garrett v. Moore-McCormack Co., 1942, 317 U.S. 239, 63 S. Ct. 246, 87 L. Ed. 239, appraised the proofs before him and found as a fact that the release was voluntarily executed by the seaman, with full knowledge of his rights, and for a reasonable consideration. These findings are amply supported by the record in each case, and we shall not disturb them.

Affirmed.
