Wrecked Vessel Floats On in 21 Year SDNY Case As Parties Dispute Who Holds the Books

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 14 – In a case that has been pending for 21 years, H.M.S. Hussar, Inc. sued "The Unidentified, Wrecked, and Abandoned Sailing Vessel."      

    On August 18, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Loretta A. Preska held a proceeding. Inner City Press called in, identified itself, and covered it.  

 A man who identified himself as Captain Rob called in as well.

So too a man who reminisced about Judge Preska having put the litigants into her jury room to work it out. (Inner City Press previously witnessed this in Judge Preska's Argentina case).  

 Then, the speaker said, his adversary disappeared, into the Bronx. Now there are questions about the partnership: the Board Members "have no access to the corporate books... This has stymied the recovery / salvage efforts of the wreck."

  Judge Preska acted to try to get the 21-year-old case to stop drifting.

Another conference was held on October 14, and Inner City Press again covered it. The move now is to consolidate cases; an argument ensued at the end about who is the keeper of the books, the original books. Judge Preska gently urged cordiality. It involves, of course, an Eighteen Century British sailing vessel that sank in the territorial jurisdiction of the SDNY in 1780.

 It is H.M.S. Hussar, Inc. v. The Unidentified, 00-cv-121 (Preska)
