Titanic of a battle between two "Fat Cats"

Most interesting expensive and extensive court battle currently taking place in Florida between two "fat cats" of the cruise industry trying to snub the other. But consider the irony of this with the aftermath of the SS Norway's boiler explosion in 2003. "During the trial last week at the Miami-Dade courthouse, where NCL crew members are barred from filing suit, Veitch's lawyer reportedly asked the jury to consider awarding $95,000,000 in damages. That may be a proper amount to finally compensate the families of the eight Filipino crew members who were burned to death on the SS Norway back in 2003, but it seems to be an awful lot for a healthy, millionaire former cruise executive with hurt feelings." http://www.cruiselawnews.com/2017/12/articles/executives/former-ncl-cruise-executives-square-off-in-trial-in-miamidade-courthouse-but-what-about-the-dead-filipino-crew-members/
