According to this article in IndiaWest, College student and Penn Masala singer Ram Narayan is suing JetBlue Airlines after he was erroneously embarrassed and escorted off a plane from New York to Portland last summer—a mistake, which he claims, was based solely on his skin color.
Narayan is being represented in this suit by well-known lawyer, Brandon Mayfield, who became somewhat of a household name when he himself was mistakenly linked by the FBI to the 2004 train bombings in Madrid. The United States has since issued a formal apology and $2 million settlement to Mayfield, and has deemed parts of the PATRIOT Act unconstitutional.
Tsk tsk, JetBlue. We love extra legroom as much as the next guy, but why you gotta be so heartless?
