AC Cuneo reports that getting up early has its advantages sometimes, such as seeing this morning's fog on the waterfront.
Benjamin Urbelis isn't waiting for the state court system to decide whether he's criminally liable for a passenger on his boat having her arm sliced off: He's filed a request in federal court that seeks to have a judge limit his civil liabilities should he get sued.

In his request , he asserts he's not to blame for the arm loss and injuries other passengers on his Naut Guilty "may have sustained" and so a judge should rule he either has no civil liability or, if he does, that liability is limited to the worth of the boat.
