Woman files lawsuit against AMR because passenger next to her masturbated while she slept
Woman files lawsuit against AMR because passenger next to her masturbated while she slept
A 21-year-old Harris County woman filed a $200,000 lawsuit against American Airlines alleging employees on a flight to Los Angeles from Dallas/Fort Worth Airport failed to protect her while she slept from another passenger who masturbated to her and ejaculated in her hair, according to a lawsuit she filed last week in Tarrant County.
The Harris County woman alleges employees knew of the risks associated with failing to “police the passengers to ensure that passengers do not hurt one another,” the suit states.
Airline officials did not return calls seeking comment. In a statement to a Houston television station last year, a spokesman said the company regretted the incident, but the flight crew took appropriate action.
The woman and her lawyer could not be reached for comment. The Star-Telegram does not identify victims of sexual crimes.
Destined for a Spring Break visit with family and friends March 19, the woman flew from Houston to DFW Airport and had settled into her seat for the last leg of flight 2074 to Los Angeles about 11 p.m., the suit states. The woman slept most of the flight, but awoke about 20 minutes before landing when the pilot announced the plane was on descent into Los Angeles. When the woman opened her eyes, she saw that an unknown man had moved into the seat next to her and was staring at her as he masturbated, the suit states.
The woman turned toward the window in embarrassment and in an act of nervousness began to run her fingers through her hair where she noticed “a substantial amount of an extremely sticky substance in her hair,” the suit states.
The woman began to cry and tried to get the attention of a flight attendant, but was unsuccessful, the suit states. Finally a passenger in the row in front of the woman comforted her and verified the semen in her hair, the suit states.
When the plane landed, employee called airport police and the man was arrested.
The suit alleges that the during the investigation, American Airlines employees told police they witnessed the man move from his assigned seat into the row where the woman was sleeping.
The woman is seeking punitive damages and a jury trial.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

That reminds me of the three people that got shot in the head at a theater: Abe Lincoln, John Kennedy and the guy sitting in front of Pee-Wee Herman.For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

At what point does an airline become liable for the actions of a passenger?
The plaintiff states that the airline had a duty to act in 'policing' the passengers. Do they really? How much time elapsed from when the offender changed seats until he tossed? The article doesn't specify, and the victim, asleep, probably cannot say.
Is it reasonable to expect flight attendants to constantly patrol over the course of an entire flight? Consider that LA to DFW is around a 3 to 3.5 hour flight, and the offender could legitimately conceal his actions from an attendant easily.
The offender is to blame, certainly. I'm just not so sure that the airline should be targetted for its deep pockets alone.

CB, I agree with most, but my questions is this, why would a flight attendant not check in with the guy to see why he moved seats. They said they saw him move by why did they not care? Good customer service would have flagged this to make sure everything was okay, and if they would have check on him, it could (not saying it would ) have prevent the incident because he would have felt like someone was watch/keeping tabs
