Trotter v. 7R Holdings LLC, 16-1967

Affirming a district court order dismissing a maritime case involving an injury that took place on a boat registered in the British Virgin Islands for forum non conveniens because the remedies available in the alternative forum were not clearly inadequate, the Jones Act lacked a special venue provision, and the court reasonably balanced the relevant private and public interest factors.
