Justice

According to a report coming out of Indiana by way of USA Today, a woman is suing Carnival Cruise Lines because the ship she was on went so fast it made her sick.

Originally filed in the Lake County, Indiana Small Claims Court in 2009, the complaint states that the woman’s body “swayed terrible” and that she “had bleeding”.  I’ll resist the oh-so-strong temptation to make a snide observation here, but it does bring to mind some interesting images.

The Indiana Court of Appeals ruled on Monday that the case cannot be pursued in Indiana, citing Carnival’s cruise contract, which states that such cases must be filed in Florida courts.

I’d like to be even-handed here and not be too critical but, seriously, does this make any sense to anyone other than the complainant?  And is she really sincere, or did she just decide that she might get a few bucks out of this maneuver?

And what of the courts in Indiana?  This frivolous case went up to the Court of Appeals?  How is this possible?

Hmmm, just a sec.  I think a pig just flew past my window.
