The Pridgeon and the propeller Lelah Chamberlain collided off Sheboygan, Wis., in October 1886. The Chamberlain sank and proved a total loss. The court held that the Pridgeon was solely at fault. The court limited the liability of the Pridgeon to $27,500. An appeal was taken to the United States Supreme Court.
