The United Airlines passenger (click here) dragged from a plane in Chicago in an incident that sparked international outrage and turned into a corporate public relations nightmare suffered a concussion and broken nose and will likely sue, his attorney said on Thursday.

"For a long time airlines, United in particular, have bullied us," Thomas Demetrio told a news conference in Chicago, outlining the potential causes of action they may pursue against United and the city of Chicago.

"Will there be a lawsuit? Yeah, probably."...

...But, the Senate or House would accomplish nothing and would seek United's understanding, turning a very bad incident into a great need for control. If I thought for one minute the US Congress was capable of running an investigation that lead to the assault of this man I'd be happy to listen to it, but, it is not capable of protecting the American people so why bother.
