Chief Maersk Alabama cook Richard Hicks has filed a suit for $75,000 against the shipping company Maersk Line Limited and Waterman Steamship Corp. for ignoring requests to beef up security on their ships and arm crews to better equip them in the event of a pirate attack. Hicks says the main goal of the suit is to make sure crews are better protected in the future. [HuffPo]
