City leaders in Baltimore accuse ship owner and manager of negligence after Key Bridge collapse

An article in Baltimore talks about the legal implications of the container ship causing the collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The city’s mayor and council filed court papers blaming the ship’s owner, Grace Ocean Private Ltd., and manager, Synergy Marine Pte Ltd., for the disaster due to negligence. A federal court will determine the extent of liability, potentially becoming one of the costliest maritime disasters. The ship lost power and collided with the bridge, killing workers. The companies attempted to limit their liability to $43.6 million, but the city argues they should be fully accountable, considering the economic impact on the region and destruction of the bridge. Victims’ lawyers also oppose the limited liability request, while salvage work continues to clear the river.
