This is the fifth annual collection of hidden maritime legal scholarship. It includes admiralty articles published outside of the four U.S. maritime law journals. Although a few have listed publication dates of 2005 or 2007, all items were published during the 2006 calendar year by U.S.-based scholarly or professional legal publications. Legal newspapers or newsletters are not incorporated.
Highlights of this year's scholarship include measures to combat piracy and terrorism, debates about whether Congress should end the antitrust immunity for ocean common carriers, issues regarding the ownership of salvaged shipwrecks, cases that require arbitration in seamen's injury claims, and the rules of compulsory pilotage. One set of articles examines the international agreements that are working to protect the marine environment and international cooperation to protect fisheries by regulating fishing operations. Other articles review ocean policies as reported by the Pew Oceans Commission and the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy. Finally, several authors analyze the most recent admiralty decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court: Stewart v. Dutra Construction Co., and Spector v. Norwegian Cruise Line.
