Pursuant to such request,2 this Order directs Respondents Falcon Shipping, Inc. and Mr. Abdiel Falcon, its qualifying individual, to show cause, pursuant to 46 CFR 502.66, why the BCL’s determination to deny the OTI license application should not be upheld inasmuch as Mr. Falcon was convicted of a felony charge of unlawful importation of goods in violation of 18 U.S.C. 545 and is still serving probation on such conviction. Section 19 of the Shipping Act of 1984, 46 U.S.C. 40901, provides that the Commission shall issue an OTI license to a person that the Commission determines to be qualified by experience and character. The Commission’s regulations at 46 CFR 515.15 implement the standards for licensing under section 19, and state that: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES If the Commission determines, as a result of its investigation, that the applicant: (a) Does not possess the necessary experience or character to render intermediary services; (b) Has failed to respond to any lawful inquiry of the Commission; or (c) Has made any materially false or misleading statement to the Commission; then a letter of intent to deny the application shall be sent to the applicant * * * The Commission’s regulations thus require denial of an application for an OTI license if the applicant does not possess the necessary character to render OTI services. It is well established that the burden of proof in a licensing proceeding is on the applicant. Independent Ocean Freight Forwarder Application—Lesco Packing Co. Inc., 19 FMC 132, 136 (FMC 1976). The Commission has previously found that commission of a federal crime rises to the level of the ‘‘most egregious circumstances’’ warranting revocation or suspension (and, by analogy, denial) of a license. In the Matter of Ocean Transportation License in the Name of Apparel Logistics, Inc., Petition for Appeal from Staff Action or in the Alternative for Initiation of an Investigation, 30 S.R.R. 567, 570 (FMC 2004) (‘‘Prior decisions have held that revoking or suspending an OTI license should be limited to the most egregious circumstances, such as OTIs violating the Shipping Act or Commission regulations, committing other federal offenses, or materially misrepresenting information regarding their qualifications.’’), citing Stallion Cargo, Inc.—Possible Violations of Sections 10(a)(1) and 10 (b) (1) of the Shipping Act of 1984, 29 S.R.R. 665, 683–84 (FMC 2001); AAA NordStar Line Inc.— 2 While transmitted only to BCL, Mr. Falcon’s email request is deemed sufficient under 46 CFR 515.15 to entitle Falcon Shipping to a hearing with respect to his OTI application. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:48 Jun 28, 2011 Jkt 223001 Revocation of License No. 12234, 29 S.R.R. 663, 663–64 (FMC 2002); Commonwealth Shipping Ltd., Cargo Carriers Ltd., Martyn C. Merritt and Mary Anne Merritt—Submission of Materially False or Misleading Statements to the Federal Maritime Commission And False Representation of Common Carrier Vessel Operations, 29 S.R.R. 1408, 1412–1414 (FMC 2003). Now therefore, it is ordered That pursuant to sections 11 and 19 of the Shipping Act of 1984, Falcon Shipping, Inc. and Abdiel Falcon are hereby directed to show cause why the BCL’s determination to deny the OTI license application should not be upheld. It is further ordered That this proceeding is limited to the submission of facts and memoranda of law; It is further ordered That Falcon Shipping, Inc. and Abdiel Falcon are named as Respondents in this proceeding.
