"The American Civil Liberties Union and United Airlines announced today that they have reached a settlement in a lawsuit brought on behalf of Assem Bayaa [an Arab-American] and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), charging that the airline discriminated against Bayaa by removing him from a flight," according to an ACLU press release.
"While United disputes Bayaa’s and ADC’s allegations, the parties agree that settlement of this claim is in the best interest of all. "
The suit stems from an incident in which Bayaa and the ADC claim that Bayaa was ejected from his flight solely on the basis of his race or national origin. The alleged incident took place after 9/11. The complaint is available online: Bayaa v. United Airlines, Inc.
