U.S. Supreme Court to Revisit Field Preemption in Aviation

The United States Supreme Court has granted certiorari in the case of Northwest Airlines v. Ginsberg.The plaintiffs allege that Northwest Airlines committed a breach of contract under Minnesota state law when the airline expelled the plaintiffs from its frequent flyer program. The main question at issue for the Supreme Court will be whether the Airline Deregulation Act preempts state law regarding pricing or service. The case will be heard sometime after the next term begins in October.
