A federal judge has denied class-action status in a $100 million negligence lawsuit filed by passengers aboard a cruise ship that was struck by a 70-foot rogue wave last year. In a 20-page decision filed earlier this month, Altonaga said that not all passengers suffered equally in the incident.

Even if a number of persons are injured in the same incident aboard a cruise line–like Holland America–it probably makes sense to bring their cases individually rather than as a class action. The Holland America ticket indicates that all claims must be brought in Seattle, Washington.
