Fly the Friendly Skies?


There have been quite a few stories of fights in passenger airplanes as air flight begins to pick up again.  That, of course, leads to litigation in some cases.

In the case of J.D. v. Price, No. 2:20-CV-749 (W.D. Pa. Nov. 3, 2021 Stickman, J.), the court denied summary judgment after finding that an airline owes a duty to a passenger to prevent an assault by another passenger who was obviously intoxicated when that passenger boarded the aircraft.

I send thanks to Attorney James M. Beck of the Philadelphia office of the Reed Smith law firm for bringing this case to my attention.
