A federal judge in Florida on Wednesday set a Dec. 21 deadline for damage claims to be filed by the families of 33 sailors lost at sea when the freighter El Faro went down last month in a hurricane off the Bahamas. Survivors and bereaved family members in other personal injury cases normally have three years to bring their claims, according to Houston lawyer Kurt Arnold, who has sued Tote on behalf of two seamen's families. The same court deadline applies to families who want to contest Tote's claim that the company was not at fault for the disaster, according to the order signed by Judge Harvey Schlesinger in U.S. District Court in Jacksonville.
