INSURANCE CO.

[80 C. Cls. 11; 298 U. S. 483]

Certiorari to review a judgment of the Court of Claims on a claim in general average contribution against the United States.

Judgment was rendered in favor of the plaintiff in the Court of Claims. Upon certiorari the judgment was reversed May 25, 1936, the Supreme Court deciding: 1. A claim of contribution in general average presented against the

United States by suit in the Court of Claims filed more than 6 years after the claim first accrued, is barred by U. S. C.,

title 28, section 262. 2. The right to contribution in general average accrues when all the

elements essential to its existence are present, regardless of whether the appropriate means of enforcement be a suit in rem

or a suit in personam. 3. The right to contribution in general average accrues and becomes

enforceable upon the arrival of the ship at port of destination and delivery of the cargo, even though the amount of

the required contribution has not then been liquidated. 4. Claims against the United States for general average contribution

are brought and adjudicated in the Court of Claims under U. S. C., title 28, section 250 (1). The claim may accrue and be sued on even though the damages sought be unliquidated.

5. An adjuster, engaged by a ship-owner to make up a general aver
