Chapter 39

Tenth Edition (2017)

Arrest of a cargo does not include ship

If cargo on board the ship is ordered to be arrested, the Sheriff or the Marshal will arrest the cargo. Without intervening in the claim in which the cargo has been arrested the ship owners or the vessel interest can request the Sheriff or the Marshal to take the appropriate steps to enable the ship to be discharged, the Sheriff or Marshal will make an application to the court for appropriate relief.
 
Alternatively, the ship owner or the vessel interest can make an appropriate application to the court for the ship to be discharged
