Carnival sues owners of Deepwater Horizon oil rig

By Donna Tunney
Carnival Corp. filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in New Orleans against owners, operators and manufacturers of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig.Carnival said the Gulf oil spill a year ago caused it to incur increased fuel costs, vessel cleaning costs and loss of revenue and bookings.

Court documents filed April 20 do not indicate any specified amount of damages the company is seeking. Carnival is seeking a jury trial.

At the same time, Carnival filed a counterclaim to a petition by Triton Asset Leasing, Transocean Holdings and other owners of the rig. The petition seeks exoneration from or limited liability for the drilling unit.

In its counterclaim, Carnival reserved its right to pursue claims in state court.
