Running Time: 00:15:41

Rod SullivanOn October 1, 2012, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach, Florida. The case considers whether a floating home that was unable to navigate and indefinitely attached to a dock constituted a ‘vessel,’ and would be subject to federal maritime law.  Although the City has since obtained a court order requiring the sale of the home (due to non-payment of bills for city services) and then purchased it at the subsequent auction, the disposition of a $25,000 bond the City posted in the course of the litigation remains in question.

To discuss the case, we have Rod Sullivan, who is an Assistant Professor at Florida Coastal School of Law.
