District of Columbia, Superior Court
Admiralty law or maritime law is the distinct body of law (both substantive and procedural) governing navigation and shipping. Topics associated with this field in legal reference works may include: shipping; navigation; waters; commerce; seamen;
towage; wharves, piers, and docks; insurance; maritime liens; canals; and recreation. Piracy (ship hijacking) is also an aspect of admiralty.
Regulations are found in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The Supplemental Admiralty Rules take precedence over the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure in the event of conflict between the two. Source: http://www.law.cornell.edu/topics/admiralty.html
