Another Lawsuit to be Settled?
The suit contends that Southwest failed in its duty to operate, maintain and control the 737 so as not to cause injury to people. Southwest also breached the duty of care owed to Galindo by negligently and carelessly failing to properly assess landing conditions, the suit claims. The suit also alleges that Southwest was negligent and careless in its failure to abort the landing after the plane had bounced back into the air on touchdown.
The city is guilty of negligence, the suit alleges, for not closing down the airport on a night when conditions were unsafe, and for failing to provide a safe runway area.
