Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

The interesting legal liability issue is whether the owner would be liable for the woman's death after this video is posted to YouTube, assuming he continues to employ the captain.

I believe he is the president and CEO of a large intl. corp, Dow Corning maybe? Find the deep pockets, as they say in the PI field.

If you continue to employ this kind of captain, should you be held personally liable for his negligence? Does the posting of the video constitute sufficient notice/knowledge of the captain's recklessness and incompetence?
