Former Pilot Sues JetBlue After Having Midair Meltdown
A former pilot who had a meltdown midair is suing JetBlue airlines for allowing him to fly that day.
Neil Cavuto reported on "Your World" that a New York to Las Vegas flight in March 2012 was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas due to pilot Clayton Osbon's erratic behavior.
The pilot was tackled by passengers after he ran through the plane screaming about Jesus, religion, terrorists, and the deadly 9/11 terror attack.
Federal authorities arrested Osbon and charged him with interfering with a flight crew once the plane landed in Amarillo, Texas.
Osbon's lawsuit claims that JetBlue should have realized that he was unfit to fly when he started acting bizarre before the plane departed.
Cavuto said that Osbon is seeking $14 million in damages.
Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on "Your World" about the case.
"Well you certainly have to note the timing of this, the lawsuit was filed today, a week after the tragedy in the Alps," he said. "Captain Osbon's case is unique. He had a childhood brain injury of which he was unaware. It wasn't discovered until after he had this meltdown."
Napolitano added that he doesn't think a judge and jury will accept Osbon's argument.
"This one is really really out there," he said. "I don't even know if it would have happened but for that suicidal maniac in the Alps."
