The world's attention has dutifully been directed to the Italian cruise ship <a href="">tragedy</a> and the <a href="">allegedly</a> cowardly acts of the captain.  But, as is always the case, tragedy begets the opportunity for litigation.  However, as this NYT piece <a href="">points out</a>, it is not so easy to sue a cruise ship owner/operator.  Good news for insurers, but bad news for lawyers and litigants.
