LeeAnne Hansen, et al. v. American Airlines, Inc., et al.

This lawsuit, brought by two well-respected and long-term flight attendants who alleged sexual assault and harassment by a pilot known for his misconduct, exposes not only the prevalent sexual harassment affecting flight attendants but also the retaliation experienced by those who speak up against pilots — who put passengers’ lives in danger but are rewarded, while sexual harassment victims are punished and pushed out of their jobs.
