Cathleen Donato filed a complaint on July 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against NCL (Bahamas) LTD, doing business as Norwegian Cruise Line, alleging negligence.

The plaintiff holds NCL (Bahamas) LTD responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to provide adequate assistance to plaintiff and its passengers that were attempting to board the tender.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages plus interest and any other relief as this court deems just. She is represented by Joel M. Barnett of Waks & Barnett PF in Miami.
