Costa Concordia crew member sues Carnival for $100 million

Complaint alleges negligence and breach of contract

A crew member of the wrecked Costa Concordia is crying out for a mutiny.

Gary Lobaton—who worked on the Carnival Corp.-owned Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia, which capsized on Jan. 13 after the captain allegedly steered the ship too close to shore—filed a complaint against Carnival yesterday in federal court in Chicago. He claims the cruise line owner is guilty of negligence and breach of contract, and he seeks class action status to represent all victims of the disaster.
