Suit to be filed against TB-infected air traveler

The Atlanta lawyer, who made headlines this spring when he traveled aboard a commercial flight from Europe while infected with a form of tuberculosis, may soon find himself concentrating on another case, this time as the defendant.A Montreal lawyer has confirmed that a suit against Speaker will be filed in Quebec court by the end of next week.

The suit is being launched on behalf of two Czech sisters who sat beside Speaker on Czech Airways flight 0104 from Prague to Montreal on May 24, as well as a Laval man who traveled on the flight.

“We will be claiming the actual monetary damages the two Czech ladies have suffered … (based) on the amount of money they have spent for their vacation which they were not able to enjoy,” Anlac Nguyen of the Montreal law firm Nachr Nguyen said. “Another thing is the inconvenience that their family (in Montreal) had to go through while the ladies were here.”

Estimated damages resulting from Speaker’s action, such as the inconvenience of on-going hospital visits in the Czech Republic, will also be claimed, Nguyen said.
