Dear Ms. Van Niman,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Selected Non-Trial Civil Case Files, 1978 - 1991; Civil Case Files, 1938 - 1999; Civil Dockets, 1938 - 1990; Index to Judgments, ca. 1806 - 1980; and Index to Case Files, ca. 1806 - 1981 of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana in the Records of District Courts of the United States (Record Group 21) that may include records pertaining to M.V. Sharon H. For more information about this case file, please contact the National Archives at Fort Worth (RM-FW) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RM-FW. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Also, the case you seek may still be with the US District Court of the Eastern District of Louisiana. Please contact their Clerk of the Court to inquire about the disposition of these records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
