    "He's not logical anymore, developed mood swings..." Yeah, it's called being 56. Let's face it, he was stupid enough to walk into it in the first place. Strike down the judgement your honor.

    Tough to say from that report. It looks like a jury heard the facts of the case, and thought it was worth 21.5 mil. I'm not sure how they got to that number, and it must have simply been that the jury just got pissed about other incidences (if any, and if proved).

    This. Like that coffee case people always make fun of. There were hundreds history of serious burns prior to that case and finally a jury said "fuck McDonalds". NOT frivolous. Given the sleazy nature of cruise lines I'd be surprised if they DIDN'T have a history of being liable for injuries at all levels.

    I agree largely with this. I'm going to err on the side of the jury, which had access to the relevant information of the case instead of making a completely uninformed opinion.

    I will say, though, what gives me doubt... Is the phrase "a jury in SEATTLE". Those hipsters haaaaaate corporations that aren't into hipster ideals.
