A jury has awarded $24 million to Carnival Corp. in its lawsuit against Rolls-Royce PLC involving claims of a faulty propulsion system aboard the luxury liner Queen Mary 2. The federal court jury awarded $16 million in damages for eight counts of fraud and $8 million for breach of repair warranties. Carnival contended that the Mermaid propulsion system installed by Rolls on the Queen Mary 2 was defective, suffered breakdowns and had to be serviced more often than advertised. The 1,132-foot Queen Mary 2 is operated by Carnival subsidiary Cunard.
