Lawsuit Over Purple Dildo Taped To Luggage Fails



Good
!

A federal judge dismissed claims that Continental Airlines took a dildo from the luggage of a gay couple, greased it and taped it to the outside of their bag. The humiliating display allegedly occurred while Christopher Bridgeman and Marin Borger returned to Virginia from Costa Rica. … [W]hile waiting at the baggage carousel in Virginia, the men allegedly found that someone had removed a sex toy from their luggage, taped it to the top of the bag and smeared it with “a greasy foul-smelling substance.” [...] The Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, commonly known as the Montreal Convention, pre-empts the claims for damages related to the mishandling of luggage, according to the ruling. Borger and Bridgeman were unable to circumvent the treaty to find relief, according to the four-page order.

As I already said, if they were so ashamed of their big purple dildo, they shouldn’t have taken it on vacation and put it in the hands of strangers via their checked luggage. And if they were truly humiliated, they wouldn’t have filed a federal lawsuit and posted photos of the alleged incident online.

    I understand your second point about sharing it online but I am sorry, I don’t agree with the first.
    We should be able to put anything in our luggage without expecting airport personnel to not only go through it but take it out and showing it for the world to see. I don’t think it is unreasonable to have a minimum expectation of privacy as to what you put in your luggage and that if placed in a situation where security personnel has to see personal belongings because of their job, they will be professional about it and keep the hassle and embarrassment to a minimum.

    Isn’t that what the dildo was for?

    No flight personel and baggage handling staff should make a client’s / customer’s private matters public (especially when the client or costumer wasn’t difficult in the first place). That’s bad business. To me that’s just common sense and doesn’t need to get in front of a judge.

    Ok. Next time I decide to fly a really huge dildo I will parade it in cabin for everyone to see.

    The reality is that security often does go through your bags. In Puerto Rico, they stole sunglasses and other items from mine. Have you ever met these people? They are essentially low paid, uneducated and unemployable for most other jobs. That duffle bag is cheap Wal Mart grade garbage. And the zipper is clearly broken in the picture, and the contents probably spilled. They have tape on hand for this very reason. You are expecting too much for them to pack a dildo properly back in the bag.
