This year's "landmark" case in maritime law began, of all places, along Kinzie Street in downtown Chicago. On April 13, 1992, the basements of buildings all over downtown were flooded. Electricity and phone service were cut off. For days, the central business district sat paralyzed. Eventually, investigators determined the Chicago River had "sprung a leak" when a barge, hired by the city to repair the Kinzie Street Bridge, had inadvertently poked a hole in an underground tunnel.
