Sean Murphy Serves as Ad Hoc Judge before ITLOS
Sean D. Murphy of George Washington University Law School was chosen by the Federal Republic of Nigeria to serve as an ad hoc judge for a proceeding before the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. The M/T “San Padre Pio” Case, brought against Nigeria by Switzerland, concerns the arrest and detention by Nigeria of a Swiss-flagged vessel, the San Padre Pio, its crew, and cargo.
“It is a great honor to be chosen to serve as a judge in such a proceeding,” said Professor Murphy. “As a young lawyer at the US Department of State, I attended the first inauguration of tribunal judges in 1996, certainly never thinking that I might be back someday to sit among them.”
