Girl allegedly groped on flight seeks $10M from airline

🕐 1 min read

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The lawyer for a 13-year-old girl who told police she was groped while traveling alone on a Dallas-to-Portland flight seeks $10 million in federal lawsuit against American Airlines and the passenger accused of the crime.

Attorney Brent Goodfellow filed the suit Tuesday in Portland, alleging last month’s incident caused his client extreme fear and psychological trauma.

American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller says the company is reviewing the lawsuit while continuing to cooperate with the FBI investigation.

The suspect, 26-year-old Chad Camp, remains in a Portland jail after pleading not guilty to abusive sexual contact.

Authorities have said a flight attendant was delivering snacks when she noticed Camp’s hand in the victim’s crotch area. She noticed a single tear falling down the girl’s cheek and quickly separated the two.

A witness said Camp consumed at least four mixed drinks shortly before the flight.
