TLS student casenote leads to invitation to discuss upcoming S. Ct. case

September 10, 2012

Courtney Collins

Third-year law student Courtney Collins has been invited by the Florida State Bar Admiralty and Maritime Law Committee to introduce a roundtable discussion on the case of Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach, Fla., which is presently before the U.S. Supreme Court.  Ms. Collins's Note on the Lozman case was published in the Tulane Maritime Law JournaI, 36 Tul. Mar. L.J. 779 (2012), and came to the attention of the Committee.  Ms. Collins will lead a discussion about the case among a group that will include attorneys, law professors, and perhaps even the plaintiff in the case.  Lozman raises the issue of whether Mr. Lozman's houseboat constituted a "vessel" for purposes of the admiralty jurisdiction in rem. It has significance for other permanently moored structures, such as casino boats.
