Muhammad Rana, Complainant v. Michelle Franklin, d.b.a. ``The 
Right Move Inc.'', Respondent; Notice of Filing of Complaint and 

Served: May 13, 2019.
    Notice is given that a complaint has been filed with the Federal 
Maritime Commission (Commission) by Muhammad J. Rana, hereinafter 
``Complainant'', against Michelle Franklin, d.b.a. ``The Right Move 
Inc.'', hereinafter ``Respondent''. Complainant states that he ``. . . 
is a U.S. citizen who was temporarily relocating his residence from 
Alexandria, Virginia to Islamabad, Pakistan.'' Complainant states that 
Respondent ``. . .is an individual ocean shipping/freight forwarder 
doing business as `The Right Move, Inc.''' with FMC Registration 
    Complainant states that ``On February 6, 2019, [he] and the 
[R]espondent entered into an agreement through electronic mail where 
the [C]omplainant retained the services of the [R]espondent.'' 
Complainant alleges that the Respondent agreed to ``. . . arrange for 
the pick-up of [C]omplainant's household goods of personal effect in a 
20-foot container and ship/deliver it to the Port Qasim, Karachi, 
Pakistan for pick up by the [C]omplainant.'' Complainant alleges that 
he could not receive his container ``. . . because ocean freight/
shipping charges had not been paid by the [R]espondent.''Complainant 
alleges that Respondent's failure to pay ocean freight charges and 
uncooperativeness in providing proof such charges were paid ``. . . 
constitute an unreasonable practice related to the delivery of property 
in violation of 46 U.S.C. 41102(c) [formerly Sec.  10(d)(1) of the 
Shipping Act].''
    Complainant requests that the Commission: award $4,509.40 in 
compensatory damages, over $77,000 in other damages; revoke the 
Respondent's FMC license; and ``issue further order(s) as the 
Commission determines to be proper''; and other relief. The full text 
of the complaint can be found in the Commission's Electronic Reading 
Room at https://www2.fmc.gov/readingroom/proceeding/19-03/.

Judges. The initial decision of the presiding office in this proceeding 
shall be issued by May 13, 2020, and the final decision of the 
Commission shall be issued by November 30, 2020.
