A new twist in the 2009 Somali pirate drama involving Underhill's Captain Richard Phillips.
The five-day standoff ended when Navy SEALs killed three of Captain Phillips' captors. Phillips was hailed as a hero afterwards and his story is the subject of a feature film -- in production -- starring Tom Hanks. Now 11 former crew members from the Maersk Alabama are suing the container company, saying Phillips ignored warnings to sail clear of pirate-infested waters off Africa. Phillips is not named in the lawsuit. The company that owns the ship says the lawsuit is without merit.
