    CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT

    No. 71-107.

    Argued April 17-18, 1972
    Decided May 15, 1972

    442 F.2d 694, affirmed. Halcyon Lines v. Haenn Ship Corp., 342 U.S. 282 .

    Devereux Milburn argued the cause for petitioner. With him on the briefs were Louis L. Stanton, Jr., Jerome L. Getz, and Frank G. Kurka.

    E. Barrett Prettyman, Jr., argued the cause for respondents. With him on the brief for respondent Erie Lackawanna Railroad Co. were Timothy J. Bloomfield and Lloyd W. Roberson.

    PER CURIAM.

    We granted certiorari to review the judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, 442 F.2d 694 (1971), affirming the judgment of the District Court for the Southern District of New York, 315 F. Supp. 357 (1970). 404 U.S. 909 (1971). We agree that in this noncollision admiralty case the District Court properly dismissed petitioner's third-party complaint for contribution against respondent Erie on the authority of Halcyon Lines v. Haenn Ship Corp., 342 U.S. 282 (1952). The judgment of the Court of Appeals is therefore

      Affirmed.

    MR. JUSTICE POWELL took no part in the consideration or decision of this case. [406 U.S. 340, 341]
