Imams removed from flight agree to settlement (Flyin' Imams!)
StarTribune ^ | 10/20/09 | Paul Walsh and James Walsh

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.

U.S. Airways is spineless....I wonder how much of the payoff money will end up in terrorist coffers?

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.

US Airways did not pay; their Insurance company paid. Unfortunately; that is the reality in the business world. You think US Airways or their insurance company would risk letting a jury award 10,000,000,000 to a bunch of Muslims......

Especially in Minneapolis, they could get a very sympathetic jury there and lose big time.

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.

If you get a chance, please stop by the FReepathon thread and give it a bump. If you haven’t donated something yet, please give it some thought...

Thanks!

US Airways did not pay; their Insurance company paid.

Good point. And since the insurance company presumably will pay all but the deductible, they are the ones who decide what to do in a case like this. The client really has to go along with what they decide.

Muslim mafia wins again. US Air submits to its dhimmi status.

As has been stated, U.S. Air stood their ground throughout this. You can search the back articles and verify this, but, trust me, they stood strong. This is an insurer that didn’t want to go to trial.

Notice, there was no apology connected to this...

It was a money/business decision.

I still don’t like it.
