Leonidas Update

Yesterday, our attorneys filed a response to USAPA’s “Rule 11” motion for sanctions against the West. You can read USAPA’s motion here and what was filed by the West in response here. What is particularly revealing are the three letters included as exhibits A, C and E in the West response.

Also filed this week by USAPA is their response to our petition to the US Supreme Court. The Supreme Court will now review both filings and render a decision on whether to take our case. We do not know when that decision will be reached; it could be a matter of a week or two, or a matter of months. You can read USAPA’s filing here. Their original time to respond was November 8th, but USAPA asked for a 30 day time extension as their firm was apparently taxed by their workload. Maybe if they weren’t busy preparing frivolous Rule 11 motions for sanctions they could have met the original due date of November 8th.

You have not heard much from us in the form of updates, and the reason is that not much is happening on the legal front. Our situation remains as it has since the Ninth Circuit opinion that the Addington case was not ripe: all sides – USAPA, the West and the Company – are in the proverbial standoff. The Company is obviously concerned over their liability should they agree to a seniority list other than the Nicolau Award, otherwise they would not have filed their declaratory action in federal court. USAPA is completely incapable of moving the Section 6 process forward as it tries to get the Company to ignore the plain language of the Transition Agreement. Look for this seniority dispute to grind along in Judge Silver’s court for many more months and after that, the Ninth for many more months. We will update you again when there are developments on the legal front. However, we caution you to not hold your breath waiting for the next update.

As always, thank you for your continued financial support.



Sincerely,

Nothing new, the west lost their case on appeal and they are getting used to a date of hire contract. The only other option is to keep the airlines separate, sell the money losing phx operation to Mesa and the rest of us will be just fine!

When will you realize DOH will not prevail.

These threads are getting tiresome.

Stop feeding the monkeys. There's a lot of frustration on both sides (even though one side is completely delusional) but until something changes let's just hold off on the poop hurling.
