New Orleans Maritime Attorney Richard Martin
Lamothe Law Firm’s Clay v. ENSCO Offshore Company was recently published by Leagle, Inc. LLF attorney Richard Martin remarked that this was a cross-motion between the two defendants on the issue of indemnity. By holding that the drilling contract was maritime, despite work being performed at an OSCLA site, state law was not applied (a correct ruling because Plaintiff was a Jones Act seaman injured on a vessel, and was not a fixed platform worker) and the Louisiana Oilfield Indemnity Act didn’t apply.
