Carnival Corp., the world's largest cruise ship operator, faces damages of up to $2 million following a judge's finding that the company violated a federal statute by faxing a travel agent between 540 and 1,387 unsolicited advertisements over the course of about four years. The case marks one of the first times that a federal court has heard on diversity grounds a claim under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991; typically, they are brought only under the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005.
