Class-action lawsuit filed against Carnival Corp. over Triumph, citing lung and urinary infections

About 100 passengers from the ill-fated cruise ship Triumph have filed a class action suit against the cruise operator. The suit alleges that Carnival was negligent for allowing the Triumph to embark on the cruise, and states:

"Carnival knew or should have known that the vessel Triumph was likely to experience mechanical and/or engine issues because of prior similar issues."
