Fadaie v. Alaska Air (whistleblower)




Confidential settlement before trial Federal District Court, Seattle, No. C03-2421L. Whistleblower case brought by former maintenance supervisor alleging he was fired after he challenged management’s assertions to the FAA that a tool conformity audit ordered by the FAA following the crash of Flight 261 in January 2000, had been completed. As part of settlement, company CEO agreed to sign letter of apology to Mr. Fadaie (look for typo). Other terms are confidential. See newspaper articles: Seattle Post Intelligencer and Seattle Times.
