Princess slams suit

Cruise Weekly - - News -

PRINCESS Cruises has slammed two US law­suits the line is fac­ing, which claim it put pax in dan­ger of con­tract­ing COVID-19.

The com­pany has asked the Cal­i­for­nia fed­eral judge rul­ing the case to dis­miss the suits, claim­ing the pas­sen­gers can’t prove they were in dan­ger of get­ting the virus aboard the Grand Princess.

The line has said the pas­sen­gers are lodg­ing “an un­prece­dented the­ory of li­a­bil­ity” for emo­tional dis­tress that the United States Supreme Court had pre­vi­ously warned against.

“If ac­cepted, plain­tiffs’ the­ory would open the door to open-ended li­a­bil­ity for ev­ery busi­ness, school, church and mu­nic­i­pal­ity across Amer­ica,” Princess said in both of its dis­missal mo­tions.
