Lawsuit dismissed over 9 hours in plane

Posted By on Fri, Jul 2, 2010 at 2:27 PM

The 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals today upheld a ruling in federal court in Fayetteville that dismissed a lawsuit by a woman who alleged false imprisonment by American Airlines in the nine hours she spent on a plane in Austin, Texas during a weather delay. Among others, it rejected claims that discomfort, an upset stomach and loss of sleep qualified for damages.
