Class Action v. Southwest Airlines

SouthwestThe International Herald Tribune reports that four Southwest Airlines passengers are bringing a federal action alleging breach of contract and other causes of action relating to missed inspections of airplanes over a six-year period.  According to plaintiffs' lawyer Lew Garrison, as reported in the Charleston Gazette, plaintiffs seek reimbursement for tickets on the ground that the airline "did not comply with government regulations and did not honor its contract with its customers."  The suit also seeks punitive damages.  Mr Garrison's co-counsel, Mr. Mackey added, "The airline lied to us. Ahhh, you shouldn't lie.  Ahh, lying's bad mmkay?"
