The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals handed down ten opinions distinctly concerning admiralty issues during the 2003 calendar year. The topics covered in these cases varied from the traditional maritime issues of allision, cargo, contribution, and admiralty jurisdiction, to the less common maritime fields of criminal law and state sovereign immunity. With ten admiralty opinions in 2003, the Eleventh Circuit has maintained its status as one of the busiest admiralty circuits.
