Overka v. American Airlines (1st Cir. 2011)

Articles Discussing Case:

First Circuit Clears the Way for Skycaps to Pursue Nationwide Class Action Alleging Common Law Claims Involving Baggage Fees

Ogletree Deakins • September 13, 2011
In a three-judge panel decision issued on September 6, 2011 in Overka v. American Airlines, No. 10-8004, the First Circuit Court of Appeals let stand the expansive February 4, 2010 decision issued by U.S. District Court Judge William G. Young certifying a nationwide class of skycaps who claim that a $2 per bag service fee imposed by American Airlines unlawfully deprived them of tips. Judge Young’s 2010 class certification decision clears the way for skycaps at airports across the county to challenge American Airlines’ service fee practice on a class-wide basis on theories of unjust enrichment and tortious interference with contractual or advantageous relationship under the common law of 34 different jurisdictions from coast to coast.
