CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) — A Chicago man is suing American Airlines, alleging breach of contract by forcing him to rebook a flight.
Lucas Huddleston filed a class action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, Sept. 20 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against American Airlines Inc., alleging the defendant breached its agreement with its passengers, including the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, on Jan. 16, Huddleston suffered monetary damages from being forced to re-book his flight from Hong Kong, to Portland, Oregon, to Dallas.

Huddleston seeks trial by jury, compensatory relief, court costs and interest, plus any further relief the court grants. He is represented by attorneys Daniel Lynch and James Thompson of Lynch Thompson LLP in Chicago, by Michael J. Boni, Joshua D. Snyder and John E.
