Carnival Cruise Ship Briefly Arrested in Lawsuit Case

April 2, 2012

U.S. marshals briefly seized 'Carnival Triumph' in Galveston in $10 million legal dispute over Consta Concordia disaster victim's claim.

The Carnival Triumph was seized for several hours at its port in Galveston, where it was scheduled to leave with 2,700 passengers. Both sides said they reached a confidential deal that released the ship in time to leave for its five-day cruise to Mexico, according to 'The Washington Post'.

An arrest warrant was issued  for the MS Carnival Triumph, the 2,758-passenger cruise liner based in Galveston, owned by the same company that owns the Costa Concordia, the  cruise ship that ran aground off the coast of central Italy in January killing some 30 people. U.S. Magistrate Judge John Froeschner of Galveston ordered the ship held in a $10 million lawsuit filed by the family of a German tourist who died aboard the Costa Concordia shipwreck.
