breeched his human rights? I know the Warsaw Convention pretty well, there is no provision in it for "breeching human rights by not providing legroom".
c) The judge would have dismissed the case on the spot (actually, based on what I read here, he did). Even in small claims court (where if you always lose if you are an airline, even if the law is on your side) it would have been kicked. SCC Judges sometimes don't follow the law, but they are not stupid.

Give me a break!
