Behind a paywall, but from the headline and the first few sentences say it all. Midwest won $150,000 in the lawsuit against Elite. They still plan on coming back. We'll see what happens:

D is where OneJet flew from, so this will probably be true for Midwest. In fact, they’ll probably use the same gate!

I wouldn't be surprised if they also used OneJet's ticket counter space as well!
