HOWARD E. PFEIFER
v.
JONES & LAUGHLIN STEEL CORPORATION OWNER OR OWNER PRO HAC VICE OF BARGES 1011, 1384, 1400, 1363, AND OTHERS IN A FLEET, APPELLANT



APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA -- PITTSBURGH District Judge: Maurice B. Cohill, Jr.

Before: ALDISERT, GARTH and VAN DUSEN, Circuit Judges

Per Curiam.

In Pfeifer v. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp., 678 F.2d 453 (3d Cir. 1982), we affirmed the judgment of the district court, determining that the district court did not err in allowing a longshoreman proceeding under § 5(b) of the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, 33 U.S.C. § 905(b), to sue his employer as owner pro hac vice of the vessel upon which the longshoreman was injured, or in applying in its damages calculations the "total offset method" of Kaczkowski v. Bolubasz, 491 Pa. 561, 421 A.2d 1027 (1980). Jones & Laughlin petitioned the Supreme Court for review, and the Court granted the petition for writ of certiorari. U.S. , 103 S. Ct. 50, 74 L. Ed. 2d 57 (51 U.S.L.W. 3253, October 4, 1982) (No. 82-131).

On June 15, 1983, the Supreme Court held that the district court erred in considering itself bound by Kaczkowski, vacated our judgment, and remanded. Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. v. Pfeifer, U.S. , 103 S. Ct. 2541, 76 L. Ed. 2d 768 (51 U.S.L.W. 4795, June 15, 1983).

The judgment of the district court will be vacated and the cause remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the opinion of the Supreme Court.
