Imams' Case Proceeds

One short-sighted judge rules that the flying imams may proceed in their case against United Airlines.

By allowing the case to go forward, the judge has validated such lawsuits, thereby assuring that either there will be more of them, or that airlines will be hesitant to take actions that would help safeguard passengers' security when they fly.

It's remarkable that if many Democrats had their way, such lawsuits could likewise be directed against vigilant citizens who reported suspicious activity to the airlines.

On motion for summary judgment, all the plaintiff's assertions [in the complaint] have to be considered true and there must be a showing that they failed to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. Big whoop. If the facts don't agree with the plaintiff's assertion of fact, they'll lose at trial. The process is important, too. If they lost at summary judgment, they'd be screaming for "their day in court." Scott Johnson at Powerline is not dismayed at this.
