Inter Atlantic Canada Ltd. v. The Rio Cuyaguateje

In Admiralty Jurisdiction on (Updated )

This was an application to strike out the Statement of Claim and set aside the warrant of arrest on the grounds that the Federal Court lacked jurisdiction. The subject matter of the action was an alleged breach of an agreement relating to the utilization and allocation of North Atlantic shrimp to Cuba. The court held that this was not a claim involving Canadian maritime law and, therefore, held that it was without jurisdiction and allowed the motion.
