Roy Goldberg Quoted on COVID-19 Impact on Airlines in Law360
Partner Roy Goldberg commented on the increase in litigation facing airlines as a result of COVID-19 in a recent Law360 article. The pandemic has led to numerous disputes over ticket refunds for cancelled flights, changes to payroll and staffing, and consumer protection.
"If airlines are acting reasonably to make their critical product available as best as possible under the circumstances, they should not face lawsuits as a result," Roy said. As regulations continue to change for an industry heavily impacted by the pandemic, Roy went on to explain the effects of unfair targeting that airlines have faced.
