Woman Files Lawsuit Against Delta After Being Sexually Assaulted on Flight by Employee

Last year, a woman was sexually assaulted on a Delta Air Lines flight from Phoenix to Seattle by an airline employee while she was on her way home from attending a Taylor Swift concert. Now, she has filed a lawsuit against both the airline and her attacker.

The victim was allegedly asleep after taking sleeping pills on the flight before a man seated next to her took her hand and placed it on his crotch while reaching under the woman’s shirt and touching her breasts, according to the Department of Justice.

“The victim was flying home from a Taylor Swift concert, she put on her AirPods and went to sleep. Sitting next to her was a Delta employee, a guy in his 50s, and he started groping and sexually assaulting her while she was asleep,” Mark Lindquist, a personal injury attorney in Tacoma representing the victim, told KIRO Newsradio. “He pled guilty in federal court and admitted the assault went on for several minutes before she woke up.”
