Jury returns verdict for cruise line in overboard death lawsuit

A Miami federal jury returned a verdict in favor of a cruise line represented by Mase Mebane & Briggs, P.A. in a lawsuit alleging the cruise line was responsible for the death of an overboard passenger. The passenger’s family alleged that the cruise line overserved him alcohol and then caused them emotional distress by making announcements that the passenger intentionally went overboard. The experienced and skilled trial lawyers at Mase Mebane & Briggs, P.A. convinced the jury that the cruise line’s conduct was reasonable under the circumstances, and that the overboard occurred as a result of the passenger’s own misconduct.
