Ind. Decisions - "Woman suing Carnival: Ship sailed too fast, made me sick"
INDIANAPOLIS | A Gary woman will have to go to Florida to seek justice against a cruise ship operator she claims made her sick, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled Monday.Gene Sloan reports in USA TODAY's Travel section under the headline "Woman suing Carnival: Ship sailed too fast, made me sick."
Doris Beard, of Gary, sued Carnival Cruise Lines Inc. in Lake County Small Claims Court seeking damages because she claimed the speed of the ship made her, as well as other passengers and crew, ill.
Carnival asked the court to dismiss the case because its cruise contract with Beard required any lawsuit stemming from travel on the ship be heard only by a Miami, Fla., court.
