NEW YORK - A New York federal judge on Oct. 21 vacated a default ruling that was entered against the charterer of a vessel that alleged that it was not properly served with notice of London arbitration and a petition to confirm an award, finding that there was a lack of adequate notice (Sea Hope Navigation Inc. v. Novel Commodities SA, No. 13 Civ. 3225, S.D. N.Y.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 151019).
