don't know about that accident but the clown that crashed the COSCO BUSAN into the Oakland Bay Bridge in 2007 wants his license back!
Ino Cota was guilty of negligence in his duties as a ship pilot and should never be allowed to stand on the bridge of any vessel in a licensed capacity. Hell, I don't believe he should be allowed to operate a runabout. I think this vessel might be acceptable thoThe newspaper report adds that Cota has been working shoreside for a tug company and hopes to regain his license and work as a tug captain, “or something else.” Cota and his team are considering all options that will allow him again to sail commercially, including considering a lawsuit.
Now he wants to sue for his license back...what an ASSHOLE! Did he get his big fat retirement from the SF Bar Pilots btw? If he did then double EFF him!
