Filing a lawsuit against a company for causing you to feel ashamed and distressed is an interesting claim. It seems an especially ridiculous one, however, when the claim is based on having gotten in a fight with a gate agent at the airport following a missed connection. It is doubly so when the basis of demanding better service from the agent was throwing your elite card at them and expecting them to "hop to" and move worlds because of that. And yet even more ridiculous when you cannot even properly do that, instead presenting your debit card to the agent.
The woman demanding $150-300,000 for having spent 15 hours in jail as a result of being such a block-headed, self-absorbed, over-entitled moron doesn’t even deserve the $10-30,000 that Delta supposedly offered in a pre-trial mediation.
I know that it will cost delta more than the settlement cash offered in legal fees to see this one out. Hopefully the plaintiff learns another hard lesson here. What a moron.
There’s also a chance that I’m completely misreading the situation and that she really was maliciously prosecuted by the company for quite calmly asking for help and the debit/Medallion card thing was completely made up by the gate agent. But I’m betting against it.
