Recent Developments in Admiralty and Maritime Law at the National Level and in the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits

David W. Robertson & Michael F. Sturley | Recent Developments

This is the eleventh article in a series of annual reports on U.S. admiralty and maritime law and practice. In these articles we try to call attention to the principal national-level developments that bear on the work of admiralty judges, lawyers, and scholars, and we look more closely at the relevant work of the United States Courts of Appeals for the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits. We do not warrant full coverage, although with respect to the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits, we try to be fairly thorough.
