Singapore Airlines Settles Lawsuit After 2 Days

Fri Sep 19, 2003 6:17 am

Singapore Airlines Limited has settled a lawsuit against Dr. Harald Linke who "suffered from post traumatic stress disorder."

The trial began on 16 September 2003, and on 18 September, the Airline decided to settle for a "substantial amount" with both parties agreeing not to disclose the sum of money involved.

There are several other lawsuits pending.

"It took the empaneling of a jury to get Singapore Airlines to do the honorable thing. The result, however, does send a strong message to Singapore Airlines that the U.S. court system does have teeth and that the other cases that are pending trial will need to be similarly resolved," said Brian Panish for the plaintiff.
