A lawsuit accusing JetBlue of negligence after a pilot had a “meltdown” on a New York-to-Las Vegas flight has been settled. The lawsuit was settled without a great deal of fanfare and the terms were not disclosed. Passengers claimed in the lawsuit that JetBlue was “grossly negligent” in allowing Capt. Clayton Osbon to fly. The pilot allegedly yelled about “terrorism” and “September 11th” during a flight in March 2012. The plane made an emergency landing in Amarillo, Texas. Osbon was found not guilty by reason of insanity on a charge of interfering with a flight crew. An expert said he had a psychotic disorder caused by a lack of sleep. The civil case was settled.
