The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals handed down eight published opinions during the 2005 calendar year that dealt distinctively with admiralty issues. The cases represented a broad spectrum of traditional maritime issues, as the court issued opinions on such varied topics as salvage, admiralty practice and procedure, limitation of liability, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, marine insurance, the Vessel Hull Design Protection Act, and the doctrine of forum non conveniens. With this diverse range of topics covered in its 2005 opinions, the Eleventh Circuit remains one of this country's most important admiralty circuits.
