Carnival will need to post an Insurance bond to cover the amount of the claim until its liability is legally established and the damages are determined appropriate. Some Legal Beagle was sitting up late nights!! If it turns out that this paticular Texas jurisdiction is unique in its application of what is claimed to be Maritime Law.....Carnival should pull out of that port (Galveston) as this type of lawsuit will spawn copycats!!!
