Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Kurt Arnold:

    If Tote is telling the families and the press they want to do the right thing, then they should do it.

  2. Kurt Arnold:

    It's aggressive because it happened so fast, (TOTE) is coming out early, while the families (are) still grieving ... they only called the search off for (crew members) three weeks ago.

  3. Daniel Rose:

    The wreckage hadn't even been identified, let alone retrieved, tOTE had six months to file a limitation action. They should have waited to see if the wreckage would be found, which appears likely, and loved ones retrieved, rather than slapping the families with a lawsuit.

  4. Daniel Rose:

    First, the captain, individually, is obviously not a realistic source of recovery for the families, second, the only reason to assert allegations against the captain is to impute his acts or omissions to TOTE, but it still has to be done in a way to defeat the limitation. Simply suing the Captain does not accomplish that.

  5. Scott Wagner:

    They are acting like they didn't know what was happening, (but) there isn't a damn thing the crew can do without the owners telling them what to do, nowadays the technology is so good these owners are on the bridge with the captain every step of the way. They are virtually on the ship, so for TOTE to file limited liability and say they didn't know what was happening, that is wrong.
