Stewart v. Horizon Air
Stewart v. Horizon Air, State of Oregon, Multnomah County Circuit Court Case No. 0102-01506: Captain Richard “Buddy” Stewart refused to fly a Horizon Air jet that had repeated vibration problems. For acting to protect Horizon passengers, his crew and the company, Horizon management suspended and demoted Captain Stewart. The CEO of Horizon Air then made false statements about Captain Stewart to the media. David Sugerman represented Captain Stewart against Horizon Air and George Bagley, the former CEO. The matter settled shortly before trial with a payment of a confidential amount.
