Thank you for bringing this to our attention Rev.
We thought it was also too bad the original judge allowed the cruise line lawyers to get away with that. As i said, I can't blame the lawyers for doing their jobs (thats why they make the big bucks) but it is too bad for the plaintiff that they had to go such a distance just to get some relief.
Now the cruise line also has way more invested in the case than they needed to spend as well.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
