$275,000 verdict – Cruise Ship – passenger struck by mooring line

John Elliott Leighton went to trial and won a $275,000 verdict on behalf of a cruise ship passenger who was struck when a mishandled mooring line snapped and crashed through a window while he was eating in the ship’s dining room.  The passenger sustained neck and back injuries.  The cruise line denied that the passenger was injured.  Through the one week trial, Leighton demonstrated that the mishandled line caused the passenger to be thrown from his seat and tossed against a wall.  The jury awarded $275,000 in damages. Johns v. Norwegian Cruise Line, Miami Dade Circuit Court.
