Greek vessel accused of unpaid fuel debt topping $250K

By Robert Hadley | Dec 3, 2015

NEW ORLEANS – A Florida maritime fuel supplier says the marine vessel Atalandi owes it more than a quarter of a million dollars for unpaid fuel.

Bunkers International Corp. filed a lawsuit Nov. 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against the Atalandi, its master and Minerva Marine Inc., citing breach of contract.

According to the complaint, on June 8 Minerva ordered $273,088.53 worth of fuel from Bunkers for the Atalandi, a ship flying under a Greek flag. Although the fuel was delivered June 19, the suit says no payments have been received.

Bunkers seeks confiscation of the Atalandi, as well as a lien against her to pay for the fuel. It is represented by Baltimore attorneys J. Stephen Simms and Marios J. Monopolis of Simms Showers and by New Orleans attorney C. Gordon Starling Jr. of The Law Office of Gordon Starling.
