McALLEN, Texas (AP) -- Documents filed in the past few days in federal court in Miami indicate Carnival Cruise Lines knew about a risk of leaks from engine fuel hoses and recommended precautions before the ill-fated voyage of the Carnival Triumph.

A lawsuit filed in February on behalf of dozens of passengers argues the cruise line and its parent Carnival Corporation were negligent in maintenance.

Carnival said in a response Tuesday that the ship's engines passed inspection before departing for the four-day cruise.
