CINCINNATI (AP) - A Yale University student from Ohio has filed
a lawsuit seeking $1 million from US Airways for a video game
console he says was taken from his luggage.
Twenty-one-year-old Jesse Maiman alleges that during a flight
from New Haven, Conn., to Cincinnati in December, his Xbox 360 with
a specialized hard drive disappeared from his luggage.
Maiman says he got what he called "an unconscionable
run-around" from the airline. He's asking $1,700 for the loss of
the gaming system and for the maximum damages allowable, or $1
Maiman filed the suit Monday in Hamilton County Common Pleas
A US Airways spokeswoman said the airline was unaware of the
suit but noted that the government limits liability for lost
luggage to $3,300 per bag.
