A Target Corp. insurer sued a global shipping company after a 2021 incident allegedly sent $5.8 million in consumer goods overboard, plunging into the North Pacific Ocean.
New York-based Starr Indemnity & Liability Co. sued Copenhagen-based Maersk in the Southern District of New York on Oct. 18. The lawsuit indicated that between Jan. 12, 2021, and Feb. 4, 2021, a ship picked up cargo at the ports of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Yantian District, China, for transport to California on the Maersk Eidenoven container ship.
The suit charged "the entire cargo was lost overboard due to the negligence or breach of duty of defendants and/or their agents, servants, employees or representatives."
