Petition of the day
The petition of the day is:
Issue: Whether the Carmack Amendment, 49 U.S.C. §§ 11706, 14706, imposes a heightened “specificity” requirement on the parties to a shipping contract, precluding enforcement of an agreed-upon limitation on the carrier’s liability set forth in an incorporated tariff if the contract itself does not explicitly describe the limitation or the tariff.
