Trial set in case of tanker vs. Maine-N.H. bridge

(CONCORD, N.H.) — The dispute over who is liable for nearly $4 million in damage to the Sarah Mildred Long Bridge and the tanker that struck it is scheduled to go to trial in October 2014, reported. Maine and New Hampshire argue that the crew of Harbour Feature failed to properly secure the vessel, which broke from a pier and hit the bridge. The ship's owner blames the local port authority and a tugboat pilot who stipulated the number of mooring lines to be used.
