AMS Files Amicus Brief in Hopper Appeal Supporting USCG

American Maritime Safety, Inc. (“AMS”) has filed an amicus brief in support of the USCG’s position that the Hopper decision should be reversed. As you may recall, the Hopper decision dismissed a USCG license action on the grounds that the USCG failed to prove that the employer’s random test selection of the mariner was based on scientifically suitable computer logarithms. AMS wanted to convey the adverse impact on private sector operations that may arise given the risk created by the Hopper decision that USCG credentials and licenses could be issued to known users of dangerous drugs.
