Lawsuit filed for damages related to the Concordia Cruise ship accident
Yesterday, I posted a link to a podcast on the possible liability of the Costa Cruise line for the recent cruise ship accident in which the Costa Concordia ship ran aground and capsized off the coast of Italy (here). Today, there is news that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Costa Cruise line and its parent company, Carnival Cruise lines, on behalf of passengers who were on the Costa Concordia. At least six passengers have filed lawsuits against the companies in Miami, but a clause in the tickets bought by the 4,200 passengers stipulates that any such lawsuits must be filed in the venue of the cruise line company’s choice. In this case, Italy. For more information go here.
