Katrina Rescuer Sued By Boat Owner

So this one dude pulls a James Bond, by hopping into a boat, hotwiring it and then going around rescuing people in trouble from Katrina. His reward for his kickass moves? A lawsuit from the boat's owner.

I thought that this comment on the story was interesting:

Things may be different in nawlins, but I vaguely remember from torts class that a cause of action for trespass to chattel will not lie when it occurs as a result of an emergency. I could be remembering that incorrectly, of course...and since LA is a civil code state, it might not apply anyway.
