Here’s the latest activity in Re: Falcon Global Offshore II LLC, i.e., claims raised by the six survivors and on behalf of the thirteen crewmembers and passengers who were lost on March 13, 2021 when the offshore liftboat SEACOR POWER capsized in heavy weather:
These lawsuits have been stayed by New Orleans-based Judge Jane Triche Milazzo of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana in a limitation of liability proceeding invoked by Falcon Global Offshore II LLC, Seacor Marine, LLC, and Seacor Liftboats LLC.
On June 18, 2021, Judge Milazzo approved a motion to create a leadership structure to represent the interests of the nineteen Claimants, comprised of Co-Lead Liaison Counsel and an Executive Committee. On June 24, 2021, Lamothe Law Firm’s Richard Martin was appointed by Judge Milazzo to the Executive Committee.
On June 18, 2021, Mr. Martin filed a motion seeking a court order for each of Falcon Global Offshore II LLC, Seacor Marine, LLC, and Seacor Liftboats LLC to make a prima facie showing of their individual entitlement to limit their liability to the nineteen Claimants or, if they fail to do so, have their limitation proceedings dismissed. This matter will be taken under submission on July 14, 2021
