Admiralty - Why?

Yes, the admiralty Rules are all in Title 28 now. I have all the original admiralty rules and the books on where they all are now. They are horrendously large in volume. To start with read Southworth Machinery Co. Inc vs F/V Corey Pride, et al 1993 AMC 2261 wherein they say UCC is a source of Admiralty law and UCC is considered a source for federal admiralty law. That will get you going. Now pull Commentaries on American Law by James Kent Vol 1 Fourth Ed. This explains the admiralty jurisdiction in the federal courts. Pull the Tulane Law Review Vol 55 1980 1981 Titled Admiralty-Procedure for maritime Action in Rem found Unconstitutional.
