Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.
Carnival cruise to allow ships to sail out of Italy next week. Legal ramifications?
I think they are starting with 2 ships.
How are the certain individual and class action lawsuits going to play out when all the cruise ships start to open back up?
The cruise ship attornies will use the "force majure" or act of god to try and protect themselves.
However the plaintiffs will be able to show a 5 minute video showing dozens of instances where the ship was not enforcing social distancing/instances where areas not being cleaned or wiped down before the next person uses it, allowing the potential spread of covid.
On one hand they can't afford to just settle out of court with all the different cases they will have, yet can't run the risk of a sympathetic judge/jury awarding millions of dollars to an individual or hundreds of millions in a class action.
How do others see this playing out?
