Six Iraqi men living in Michigan filed a race discrimination lawsuit against American Airlines on Thursday claiming they were publicly humiliated when they were escorted from an aborted flight in San Diego. The suit was filed in Detroit on behalf of David Al-Watan, Talal Cholagh, Ali Alzerej, Hassan Alzerej, Hussein Alsalih and Mohammad Al-Saedy. They allege airline employees grounded their Aug. 28 flight from San Diego to Chicago and detained them, believing they were security risks. The men, some of whom are U.S. citizens, were on their way home to Detroit after training U.S. Marines at Camp Pendleton when another passenger expressed concerns to security guards partly because she heard the men speaking Arabic.
