Baltimore fights back against ship owners’ attempt to restrict liability for bridge collapse

The city of Baltimore is holding the owners of the Dali cargo ship fully liable for the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which resulted in six deaths. Mayor Brandon Scott and the Baltimore City Council argue that the owners were negligent in putting an unseaworthy vessel into the water. The city demands a jury trial and challenges the company’s attempt to limit responsibility for damages. The court filings also criticize the ship’s crew for being incompetent and failing to comply with navigation customs. The aftermath of the incident has caused the Port of Baltimore to come to a standstill, impacting the local economy significantly. The ship remains in Baltimore for inspection and repair, with the crew unsure of when they can leave.
