The Art of Accomplishment Case Studies

Airshow Blues

When an antique fighter jet that was in flight for an air show crashed into and destroyed the homes of three families, we represented them in their negligence claims against the air show. After extensive discovery that included FOIA requests to the FAA and depositions of aviation officials, and after defeating a defense of FAA preemption at summary judgment, just days before trial, our clients settled their claims on highly favorable terms.
