The Robins Dry Dock Rule May Leave Bridge Collapse Claimants High and Dry 

, USLAW Magazine, Summer Issue
June 2024

In the early morning of March 26, 2024, the Dali, a Singaporean-flagged cargo ship, crashed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge, causing the entire bridge to collapse into the Patapsco River. Since 1977, the Francis Scott Key Bridge has connected roadways circling Baltimore Harbor. The Francis Scott Key Bridge carried an estimated 11.5 million vehicles annually. Lawsuits are highly anticipated in the wake of this disaster; however, a 1927 Supreme Court case may prevent claimants from recovery.
