Lawsuit over fatal injury on Portland dock settled


The widow of a Greek port captain who died months after he was injured in an accident in Portland has settled her lawsuit against the port operator and a shipping firm. Eirini Zagklaras sued Sprague Energy Corp. and Leopard Shipping Co., alleging wrongful death. Her husband, Ioannis Zagklaras, was injured in October 2008 when he was pinned between the ship and a cable reel on the dock while helping to unload cargo. He underwent 22 surgeries and died at a Maine hospital in March 2009. The Portland Press Herald reported the trial was halted Wednesday after lawyers told the judge they had reached a settlement. Details were not disclosed.
