CASE ENTRY

Guevara v. NCL Ltd.

Cruise ship passenger slips on a step, breaks his arm. There was a “watch your step” sign, but the light illuminating it was out. Eleventh Circuit: And a jury should decide whether the cruise did enough to warn the passenger. Indeed, the “watch your step” sign itself is evidence of a problem. Judge Sutton, sitting by designation, notes his reluctance to dissent given that his home Sixth Circuit is “largely land-locked and exclusively fresh-water.” (He dissents anyway.)
