- Full Text
A.H. Mackay, a vessel owner of Hamilton, walked into litigation when he came to Buffalo on a business trip yesterday. A cleveland firm of lawyers, which represents plantiffs in admiralty actions against Mackay, wired its Buffalo proctor in the cases, Thomas C. Burke that Mackay was here.
Burke got orders from Judge Hazel for Mackay to appear in U.S. District Court on May 16 and answer the libels filed by the plantiffs, the Western Drydock & Ship Building Co., Ltd., of Port Arthur, Ontario, and the American Shipbuilding Co., of Cleveland.
Marion F. Blackman, deputy U.S. Marshal, was given the papers for service and within an hour had located Mackay at a hotel and served the processes.
The drydock company sues for a balance of $2,144.66 alleged to be due it for repairs and supplies furnished the stm. TURRET CHIEF at Port Arthur, July 17, 1915. The American Shipbuilding Co. alleges there is a balance of $1,740.74 due it for putting in boilers and furnishing supplies for the TURRET CHIEF at Lorain, May 4, 1915.
Mackay is expected to put up a bond to secure the libellants to the event of their winning the litigation. The TURRET CHIEF was not libeled for the claims of the companies, the action being brought against the owner personally.
