The BRBS Longshore Reporter Staff provides a summary of the recent LHWCA/DBA 2010 Conference in New Orleans.  For a reminder of how heavily biased toward the defense this Department of Labor sponsored  Conference was  AGAIN see:

Loyola Annual Longshore Conference 2010- Overwhelmingly for the Defense again

From the Summary

“On March 18 and 19, 2010, the Annual Longshore Conference put on by Loyola University and the United States Department of Labor was held in New Orleans. Despite the current state of the economy in the United States, a record turnout of over 310 people attended.  Included in the attendees were Acting Chief Judge Stephen Purcell and Acting Associate Chief Judge Daniel Sutton. Also attending were judges from California to Covington as well as several District Directors of the OWCP. The conference was dedicated to the Honorable John M. Vittone, who retired recently as Chief Judge of the United States Department of Labor, and conference planners also thanked him for his years of service and dedication to the conference.”

Apparently times are good for all involved in the DBA except the claimant.
