NBF lawyers Chris Reilly and Chris Nicoll, assisted by Ruby Redshaw and Jeremy Jones, won summary judgment for their clients in Milligan v. Crux Subsurface Inc., Docket No. 3:11-cv-00078-SLG (D. Alaska Sep. 27, 2012). The court ruled that the plaintiff, who was ordinarily a land-based worker but who spent 85% of his time working on a barge at a remote work site as a temporary worker in support of a land-based seasonal project, was not a seaman as a matter of law because his relationship to the defendant’s vessel was not substantial in nature.
