Online PR News – 24-May-2013 – While the residents of Marseilles have been piecing their homes and lives
back together since the April 18th flooding, Ingram Barge Company and its lawyers have already been to
court seeking to severely limit the right to recover damages from Ingram as a result of the flooding.
Claims against Ingram Barge Company arising from the April 18, 2013 flooding are subject to maritime laws
that are unique and different from land based laws. It is imperative that the residents of Marseilles understand
that this will impact the ability to hold Ingram responsible for these losses.

arising from the April 18, 2013 flooding must be filed in the federal court proceeding by June 24, 2013.
