A U.S. judge on July 29 said she lacks jurisdiction to make a judgment on a dispute over a tanker carrying Iraqi Kurdish crude oil and sitting 100 kilometers (60 miles) off Texas shores, Reuters reported July 30. The judge said she cannot enforce an order for U.S. Marshals to seize the cargo, adding that the dispute should be resolved in Iraq.
