JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- The owner of El Faro, a cargo ship likely sunk after it disappeared off the coast of the Bahamas, filed a lawsuit blocking families of the boat's victims from seeking legal action against the company.

I hope they are not successful in this. Its not like the hurricane was a surprise and it was stupid to send this cargo ship into it.

Thoughts?

Yeah I read about that and its really sad. It was downplayed in the news and the victims of the plane crash in Egypt are already getting compensation so why dont they get it too?
Somebody seriously needs to sue that shipping company for blocking compensation. They should want to help those people.

Their money means more to them than peoples lives. I hope the court doesn't block lawsuits. Their stupid decision to go into that hurricane shouldn't be protected. Maybe other shipping companies will think twice about putting the lives of their crew at risk.
