The question of what remedies should be available to maritime workers for injuries in the course of their employment has received much attention from the courts during the last fifteen years. This has resulted in some conflicts of the federal maritime jurisdiction with the jurisdiction of the states, and particularly' with the workmen's compensation acts enacted by them. The history of this situation was reviewed in 27 MICH. L. Rev. 191, December, 1928, in a note by G [errit] D [emmink]. In view of three decisions rendered last spring by the United States Supreme Court, it has seemed well to mention again the leading cases in this field, and to attempt to deduce the present state of the law.
