We affirm the judgment below in open court.


From the testimony of plaintiff in his deposition below it is clear that the accident suffered by him occurred under such circumstances that his sole and exclusive remedy was under the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. The complaint below alleged jurisdiction by virtue of the Federal Employers' Liability Act. Thus, the motion for summary judgment was properly granted. Pennsylvania R. Co. v. O'Rourke, 344 U.S. 334, 73 S.Ct. 302, 97 L.Ed. 367 (1952).
