In March, 2018, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit rendered an opinion in Barnes v. Sea Hawaii Rafting, LLC, 889 F.3d 517 (9th Cir. 2018), that established a new standard for the relationship between vessel arrest under admiralty law and bankruptcy. This meant that the first part of Chapter 13 of the book as printed needed to be changed. A revised Chapter 13 in pdf form, showing “Revised August, 2018”, is attached below. Users are encouraged to read and use the revised Chapter 13 when dealing with a vessel arrest and a petition in bankruptcy.
