necessaries

necessaries
An article which a party actually needs. State v. Earnest, Mo.App., 162 S.W.2d 338, 341.
Things indispensable, or things proper and useful, for the sustenance of human life. Necessaries consist of food, drink, clothing, medical attention, and a suitable place of residence, and they are regarded as necessaries in the absolute sense of the word. However, liability for necessaries is not limited to articles required to sustain life; it extends to articles which would ordinarily be necessary and suitable, in view of the rank, position, fortune, earning capacity, and mode of living of the individual involved. Whether attorney's services are to be considered "necessaries" depends on whether there is necessity therefor. Penn v. Hart Dairy Co., 231 Mo.App. 1005, 83 S.W.2d 120, 124.
But such services are usually "necessaries". Leonard v. Alexander, 50 Cal.App.2d 385, 122 P.2d 984, 986.
What constitutes "necessaries" for which an admiralty lien will attach depends upon what is reasonably needed in the ship's business, regard being had to the character of the voyage and the employment in which the vessel is being used. Walker Skageth Food Stores v. The Bavois, D.C.N.Y., 43 F.Supp. 109, 110, 111.
