Supreme Court Moot: Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach, FL

September 27, 2012 • 12:15 PM • Law School 3041

Jeffrey Fisher, Counsel of Record for the Petitioner, moots this upcoming case, which is scheduled to be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on October 1, 2012. At issue is whether a floating structure that is indefinitely moored, receives power and other utilities from shore, and is not intended to be used in maritime transportation or commerce constitutes a "vessel" under 1 U.S.C. § 3, thus triggering federal maritime jurisdiction. Professor Fisher codirects Stanford Law School's Supreme Court Litigation Clinic. Dean David F. Levi leads the panel of judges, which includes Duke Law Professors Donald Ayer, Margaret Lemos, Stephen Sachs, and Ernest Young. Sponsored by the Program in Public Law.
