Princess slams suit
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.
