Costa Concordia captain blames faulty ship

An Italian court is calling for a new examination of the wrecked Costa Concordia - at the request of the Captain who is facing manslaughter charges for his role in the deaths of 32 people.

Costa Concordia trial judges agree to examination of wrecked ship

Now that the ship is upright, Captain Francesco Schettino thinks a tour of the cruise liner's bridge and engine room will prove that he isn't to blame.

This move could delay the trial for months. So, is it a viable defense?
