MS Westerhaven Schiffahrts et al. v Attorney General of Belize, Civil Appeal 19 of 2010 (16 May 2011) (Court of Appeal of Belize)

The Court of Appeal of Belize reviewed a lower court decision and limited the liability of the owners of the MS Westerhaven for damage to the reef based on application of the Convention on Limitation of Liability in Maritime Claims (LLMC Convention) .  Although the lower court found the ship owners’ liability to be BZ$11,510,000, the Court of Appeals found that the Convention limited the liability to US$2,009,347 (based on the size of the ship involved).
