Geico must pay $5.2 million to woman who got HPV from sex in man's insured car, court rules (msn.com)

The woman — identified in court papers only as "M.O." — said that she "engaged in unprotected sexual activities in Insured's vehicle" in November and December 2017 and that he "negligently caused or contributed to" her catching the human papillomavirus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted infection, court papers said.
As an attorney, this one makes me wonder about the quality of the bar and bench in MO. Has she sued the hotels and city for the park benches where they had sex?

From record-setter to rubbish: World’s biggest cruise ship to be scrapped without sailing a single voyage

An unnamed cruise vessel of nearly record proportions that has been under construction in Germany for an Asia-focused cruise line will be scrapped before sailing a single voyage, according to German shipping magazine anBord.

This week anBord reported that the liquidators for the bankrupt MV Werften shipyard in Warnemunde, Germany, will sell the bulk of the half-finished ship for scrap and attempt to resell some of its systems and engines.

The vessel, often referred to as Global Dream 2, and a sister ship that had also been under construction at the MV Werften shipyard were designed to hold more than 9,000 passengers, making them the world’s largest cruise ships by passenger capacity.

At 208,000 tons each, the vessels would have been tied for the world’s sixth-largest cruise ships by size when complete, just behind Royal Caribbean’s five groundbreaking Oasis-class ships.
