"There is a lot of talk coming from CitiGroup about how Dodd-Frank isn't perfect, So let me say this to anyone listening at Citi —I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn't perfect. It should have broken you into pieces." -- Elizabeth Warren
I remember this pretty little Canadian back in '79 on my trip through Europe. Shoulda kept up with her.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I hate plaintiff's attorneys as much as anyone else, but I don't think this is that big of a deal. It doesn't sound like anyone is seeking (or could possibly win) punitive damages, so the only thing that people are asking for is compensatory damages.
If someone lost their laptop/bberry/luggage/business papers, broke their nose, spent the night in the hospital, etc., then I see no reason why they shouldn't be compensated for those things.
Is it US Air's fault? No, but they have insurance to cover this exact thing for a reason.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
