Admiralty Courts are weird places. When WIN got hit (while minding it’s own business while tied up alongside) in Esquimalt harbour by an American fishing trawler that lost control on it’s way to the Graving Dock, the Admiralty Court still assessed a small part of the blame to her.

Not disputing that Admiralty Courts may be weird places, however the "Admiralty Court" in HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN v. THE SHIP "AMERICAN DYNASTY" AND OTHERS did not render any decision as the suit was withdrawn when the owners of American Dynasty settled with Canada for a reported sum of $3.1 million.

The TSB report on the collision. Marine Investigation Report M13W0057 - Transportation Safety Board of Canada

A search of court files for the Federal Court of Canada (which performs the function of Admiralty Courts in Canada) using the court number T-2482-14, ship name "American Dynasty" or party name "American Seafoods" provides a list of documents and actions.
