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 jury verdict came after a two-week federal trial. A Carnival spokesman said jurors 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 (345-meter) Queen Mary 2 is operated by Carnival subsidiary Cunard.
A Rolls-Royce spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a telephone request from The Associated Press for comment.
