United settles with passenger dragged off its flight

The biggest story of 2017 has its ending now that United Airlines and Dr. David Dao of Elizabethtown, Ky. have reached a settlement.

Dao’s lawyer said the two sides came to an agreement; the details, however, have not been disclosed.

Here’s the news release, courtesy of NBC News:

Do we have any guesses as to how much Dao was paid to move on?

I’m going to guess one million billion dollars.

    Whatever it was, it is guaranteed that it was MUCH more than it would have cost to charter another jet for the 4 United employees.

    $5 million.

    I’m sure the lawyers did very well on this.

    Literally everyone involved, including the doctor, looked bad. Wonder what his patient load looks like these days?

    I’m guessing $3 Brazillian.

    A video only shows a portion of the story for sure. But it’s normally enough to freak people out and settle versus agonizing thru Court costs and attempting to explain the entire situation. The only wrong by most people is what they see and the added verbiage enhancing it. Nothing else matters.

      Yep, there was a line in a movie….”Have you ever watched a jury watch a video tape”?

    Nice! Reward the D-bag for breaking the rules. Great example for everyone…

    Yep, who’s going sue next? Seems like every day someone else tries to get tossed off a plane. The precedent has now been set. Makes me puke!

    i’d guess he settled for $1,500 and as many peanuts as he can carry in his pockets. They guy knew he was wrong, and was exposed for the fraud he was. He just wanted it to go away, like United. When it came down to it, United did nothing wrong. They just called the cops on an unruly passenger. The cops did their job as well.
