decided: February 25, 1957.
HESS, INC., LIBELLANT-APPELLANT,
THE ARIZONA, PERSEVERANZA SOCIETA DI NAVIGAZIONE, CLAIMANT, ET AL., RESPONDENTS-APPELLEES (TOGETHER WITH CONSOLIDATED CROSS-LIBEL).
Before CLARK, Chief Judge, MEDINA, Circuit Judge, and SMITH, District Judge.
We affirm on the reasoned findings of fact, conclusions of law, and opinion of Chief Judge Clancy, 149 F.Supp. 733, finding the pier-owner, Hess, Inc., solely responsible for the collision of a tanker with its pier because of its distribution of misleading charts, which failed to disclose shallow water near the pier and thus led to the grounding of the tanker on a shoal and resulting swing into the pier.
