Carnival sues owners of Deepwater Horizon oil rig
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.
