Skip to comments.Imams removed from flight agree to settlement (Flyin' Imams!)
Posted on 10/20/2009 11:58:05 AM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
A settlement has been reached in the "Flying Imams" federal lawsuit that was filed by six Muslim men who claim they were falsely arrested on a US Airways jet in the Twin Cities three years ago because of their religious and ethnic backgrounds.
According to federal court records, a settlement was reached Monday and filed with the court today. A clerk for U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan would not comment on a settlement and instead referred questions to attorneys.
A New York attorney for the imams Omar Mohammedi, said this afternoon that settlement is "satisfactory to the plaintiffs." Mohammedi added that money is involved, but he declined to elaborate.
Another attorney for the imams, Frederick Goetz of Minneapolis, said a few details remained to be resolved before the settlement is finalized.

Flyin’ Imams PING......
Probably the last......
my settlement would be for $0.25 so they can call someone who gives a $@#!
I for one will NOT fly US Airways. They paid these bastards off?
U.S. Airways is spineless....I wonder how much of the payoff money will end up in terrorist coffers?
It sure looks that way. Caught me by surprise. They were real strong in the beginning.....
I have a credit that I can apply toward my next US Airways flight. I won’t be using that credit.
Business decision. Don’t want the racism czar, the muslim czar, and the flight czar to destroy them over these guys.
I can only hope they settled for no counter suit.
Especially in Minneapolis, they could get a very sympathetic jury there and lose big time.
Hey, let’s see if these morons REALLY CAN FLY!!!!!! Say from 40,000 feet?
.25 won’t by too many bomb belts.
I’ll bet that Keith (PBUH) Ellison is racing towards the nearest televison camera and radio microphone as I write this....
They not only got money, they now get to say how evil and racist we are.
Here’s a settlement: free one-way airfare to some 3rd world Muslim country.
The only time I want to see a ‘flying imam’ is from the open door of an airplane at 5000 feet.
Remember the lady who went berserk in an AZ airport and strangled herself? Her family was asking for $8 million.
They settled this morning for $250,000.
