Comair Sues for Wrongful Death

The US government and Lexington airport are being sued for wrongful death by airline Comair for their part in the August plane crash that killed 49 people. The plane lost control after taking off from a runway that was too short, after an airport repaving plan changed the taxi route that led to the correct runway. Every passenger on board but one lost their life. Comair states that, while they still fully intend to make just settlements with the victims' families, the purpose of the lawsuit is to ensure that other parties involved in the tragedy share responsibility for the incident.
