Commission Publishes Official Case Law Reporter


Contact: Rachel E. Dickon, Secretary, (202) 523-5725

The Federal Maritime Commission has published on its website the first volume of Decisions of the Federal Maritime Commission, Second Series. This publication provides a compendium of Initial and Final Decisions of the Commission and selected other orders that may be significant or establish a new legal precedent. The reporter will be published periodically throughout the year on the Commission’s Documents and Proceedings page.

Decisions and orders published here may be cited by counsel and parties in Commission proceedings using the abbreviation F.M.C.2d. A proper citation will indicate the volume designation, the abbreviation, and the page on which the case report begins, such as:

D.F. Young, Inc. v. NYK Line (North America) Inc., 1 F.M.C.2d 135 (FMC 2018)

For the most current status and disposition of any proceeding, the docket activity logs remain available and are updated daily. The logs can be found at
