It seems the problems with Nova Star Cruises keep popping up since the province cut its ties with the ferry company that used to provide service between Yarmouth and Maine.
Global News obtained court documents that show a passenger who was on the ship in September of 2014 is now suing Nova Star Cruises after she sustained what is described as a “serious and permanent injury.”
Kelli Cody, of Peabody, Massachusetts, recently filed the lawsuit, alleging that while sailing on the Nova Star on September 12, 2014, she suffered an injury while, “exercising due care” aboard the ship.
The court documents go on to say that Cody suffered, “Pain of body, anguish of mind, lost time from her usual work and pursuits, incurred medical expenses and has sustained and will sustain other damages as will be shown at trial.”
The documents don’t indicate the type of injury Cody sustained, or what circumstances lead to her injury.
The plaintiff demands that Nova Star Cruises be held responsible for all damages that she has incurred, along with interest and costs, since her injury.
The documents say that the injuries weren’t caused by the passenger, but instead by the,, gross negligence, willful, wanton or outrageous conduct and reckless indifference of the rights of others,” by Nova Star.
Nova Star denies the claim that they are responsible for Cody’s injury. In an answer to the courts, Nova Star states the complainant doesn’t state a claim, and that she, “failed to allege any action with more than conclusory allegations, many of which are inherently incredible.”
