Grand Isle Shipyard Inc. v. Seacor Marine, LLC, No. 07-31019

By FindLaw Staff on December 15, 2009 12:52 PM

In an action seeking a declaration that defendant was not obligated to defend plaintiff in a personal injury suit involving an accident at sea, summary judgment for plaintiff is affirmed where: 1) Louisiana law applied because the parties' contract contemplated that a majority of the contractor's work would be performed on stationary platforms on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), and thus the OCS was the relevant "situs" for the purposes of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act; and 2) the Louisiana Oilfield Indemnity Act rendered the indemnity agreement at issue unenforceable.
