MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The Carnival Corp. has filed a lawsuit seeking more than $12 million in damage its cruise ship, Triumph, sustained in an early April windstorm.

AL.com reports (http://bit.ly/18Til8K ) the company filed the lawsuit last week and argues mooring equipment being used by BAE Systems was defective. The ship broke free of its mooring during a storm that packed winds of over 60 mph and killed a dock worker.

The Triumph was towed to Mobile after an engine room fire left it adrift for days at sea. The ship crashed into a cargo vessel during the windstorm, which left a large gash in its hull. The widow of the dock worker who drowned has already filed a lawsuit against Carnival.

BAE spokesman, John Measell, said he can't comment on pending litigation.
