Court of Appeals finds for plaintiffs in norovirus lawsuit against cruise line

In the case of Swift & others v. Fred Olsen Cruise Lines, the defendant made an appeal regarding the court’s decision, which favored 16 claimants who alleged that Fred Olsen Cruise Lines did not perform their proper level of care. In particular, they say they failed meet provisions set forth under the Athens Convention of 1974, thus causing them to contract norovirus.

The judge asked whether the failure to implement the outbreak and control plan caused the passengers to contract the norovirus. In dismissing the cruise operator’s appeal, the Court of Appeals ruled that the judge that handled the case did so in an unbiased manner.
