Jury Ruled In Favor Of Carnival Corporation In A Negligence Lawsuit

Carnival-Cruises-Sued-By-Hairy-Man.jpgLast week, a Florida federal jury ruled in favor of Carnival Corp. in a negligence case brought by a passenger who alleged he had been badly injured during a cruise. Golden was a passenger aboard the Carnival Sunshine on a five-day cruise from Port Canaveral, Florida, to the Bahamas in May 2014, when he noticed while lounging with his family that the deck had become so hot it burned sections of skin on the soles of his feet, according to the December 2014 complaint. The burns became infected and gangrenous, leading to kidney failure and hospitalizations that resulted in three separate surgeries involving the amputation of all of Golden's toes in July 2014. Plaintiff claimed Carnival "knew that their fake Teakwood deck heated up to outrageously high temperatures so as to burn the feet of a passenger who ended up having all 10 toes and parts of both feet amputated." The jurors found after about two hours of deliberation that passenger Gregory Golden's injuries weren't caused by any negligence on Carnival's part.

Chipotle In Lawsuit Over Misrepresentation

Thumbnail image for Chipotle.pngA lawsuit accusing Chipotle of "purposefully misrepresenting" that its food does not contain organisms that have been genetically modified can go forward and will not be dismissed, according to a ruling by a U.S. District Judge. The case, filed in U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida in September and seeking class action status, claims that Chipotle misled consumers in ads saying its food is GMO free. Chipotle's meat and dairy products come from animals that consume genetically modified feed, the suit claims. Recently, a Miami judge rejected Chipotle's motion to dismiss the lawsuit. A trial date is set for November.
