Man Injured on MV Glovis In Baltimore Sues For Pilot Ladder Accident, Settles in SDNY

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, September 1 – Brian Fierro on the ship MV Glovis Companion as it left the Port of Baltimore had an accident and "fell landing onto a crew member standing of the deck of the pilot launch boat sustaining severe and permanent bodily injuries." He sued.

        On September 1 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge P. Kevin Castel had scheduled a proceeding. Inner City Press called in to cover it.

  The complaint noted "the hazards of climbing pilot ladders have for many years been reported frequently by organizations such as the International Maritime Organization." 

  It emerged that the parties were settling, and the call was over before it began. And later, as promised, a notice of dismissal was entered in the docket.

The case is, or was Fierro v. NOCC Shipowning AS et al., 21-cv-5228 (Castel)
