Abstract

Indeed, even a litigant who was not in prison might attach a good deal of importance to securing a prohibition against admiralty proceedings in favor of ones at common law so that his or her liabilities would be determined by a jury. … attempt by Captain John Owen to have common law jury consider factual issues arising out of remarkable peregrinations of his vessel, crew, and cargo, which admiralty had held legally irrelevant.
