Airline wins appeal on passenger removal

BOSTON — A federal appeals court overturned a $400,000 jury award to a Portuguese-born passenger who sued American Airlines Inc., claiming he was removed from a flight because of racial discrimination. The U.S. Court of Appeals in Boston vacated an award to John Cerqueira, 40, and criticized U.S. District Judge William G. Young for not dismissing the complaint.
