The daughter of a woman killed in the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster last year off the Tuscan coast says she is vying to become Miss Italy in her mother’s memory. Stefania Vincenzi, 18, survived the crash but still does not know what became of her mother Maria Grazia Tricarichi who is believed to have drowned in the January 2012 disaster that killed 32.

Cruise victims have won another victory against Carnival Corporation when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit remanded claims to the Florida State Court for continued litigation.
The July 1, 2013 order affirmed the District Court’s prior remand order, concerning two cases, Abeid-Saba, et al., v. Carnival Corporation et al., (Docket No.: 12-CV-23513) and Scimone, et al. v. Carnival Corp. et al. (“Scimone II”), (Docket No.: 12-CV-23505). Both cases arise from plaintiffs’ claims that they were injured when the Costa Concordia capsized after grounding off the Italian coast.
