Ship From Sri Lanka Burned Off Nova Scotia So FedEx and Dupont Sued in SDNY

BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 11 – On January 3, 2019 a cargo ship en route from Sri Lanka to New York caught fire on the high seas 1900 kilometers southeast of Nova Scotia. Litigation ensued. 

 On June 11 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. The ship's formal name was the M/V Yantian Express. 

  The many claimants, including among others FedEx, New Era Cap, Jockey International, Bombardier, Dupont Nutrition, AIG and H.H. Brown Shoe were concerned about the impending expiration of their rights to sue in Singapore, on July 1.   

Judge Lehrburger urged that they meet and confer, and set a deadline of July 27 for the parties to discuss a potential bellweather to manage third-party defendant Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd.'s anticipated motion(s) to dismiss.  

The case is In the Matter of the Complaint of Hapag-Lloyd Aktiengesellschaft as Owners and Operators of the M/V Yantian Express, 19-cv-5731 (Woods / Lehrburger).
