Nut rage case: US court asked to dismiss case

 The former vice-president of South Korea`s flagship carrier Korean Air Lines Co., has asked a US court to dismiss a civil lawsuit that was filed by a flight attendants involved in last year`s "nut rage" case.



Seoul: The former vice-president of South Korea`s flagship carrier Korean Air Lines Co., has asked a US court to dismiss a civil lawsuit that was filed by a flight attendants involved in last year`s "nut rage" case.

According to legal sources on Tuesday, earlier in March, Korean Air flight attendant Kim Do-hee filed a suit against her former boss Cho Hyun-ah in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, seeking compensation for damages inflicted on her career and emotional well-being during last year`s in-flight commotion widely known as the nut rage incident, Yonhap News Agency reported.

"The former executive filed a motion to dismiss the case in New York earlier this morning," said one of Cho`s legal representatives.

The latest dismissal request requires the plaintiff to provide a response to the court by July 29.

On December 5, 2014, Cho forced a Korean Air flight departing from New York back to the gate because of the way her nuts were served -- in an unopened bag instead of on a plate -- and to have Kim`s supervisor disembarked.

Meanwhile, the Seoul High Court last month sentenced Cho to 10 months in prison but suspended the term for two years for changing an aircraft`s flight route.

Prosecutors said they have submitted an appeal to reverse the court decision.
