A former state prosecutor who says she and her two sons were kicked off a JetBlue flight in December is now planning to sue, claiming it was a result of racial discrimination.
Julie Goggin says she and her two sons were removed from their flight after she inquired about why her sons, who she purchased extra legroom seats for, were relocated to the back of the plane. The reason Goggin was given was a weight distribution issue. She says after the flight attendant told her she would not receive a refund for the seats, she asked to speak with a supervisor.
Goggin alleges the supervisor then informed her that the flight attendant was uncomfortable with her being on the flight and wanted her removed. This is the second incident in a short amount of time involving JetBlue believed to have been sparked by racism. A month earlier, Brooklyn native Shaun Lynda claimed he was profiled.
