Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach, Florida
I know I haven't really be keeping up the blog but I thought this case deserved note. The question at issue is whether a floating home indefinitely moored should be considered a vessel and thus subject to federal maritime rules. I'll try and make a more in depth post later but after reading the briefs I come down firmly on the side of the respondents. The ABA's Supreme Court Preview has kindly made the briefs available.
