Sauder Schelkopf is investigating potential litigation on behalf of passengers aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line during the COVID-19 outbreak.
As reported by CNN on March 25, 2020:
(CNN) Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office is investigating allegations that Norwegian Cruise Line gave “misleading and potentially dangerous sales pitches” to customers that downplayed the risks of coronavirus.The investigation, announced Monday, comes after the Miami New Times published a story based on leaked internal emails from managers to employees about how to speak to the public about coronavirus.According to the New Times report, Norwegian provided its sales force with inaccurate or misleading one-liners that downplayed the severity and contagiousness of coronavirus to customers, Moody’s office said.The whistleblower-leaked emails included lines such as, “the only thing you need to worry about for your cruise is do you have enough sunscreen,” and “the coronavirus can only survive in cold temperatures, so the Caribbean is a fantastic choice for your next cruise,” according to Moody’s office.
