Comair Case Heads to U.S. District Court

It's back to federal court for the Comair plane crash case.

An attorney for the airline told a Fayette circuit judge on Aug. 9 that Comair intends to bring the Federal Aviation Administration in to the case.

That announcement ends the legal business in local court.

The circuit judge was scheduled to hear arguments from 15-different lawsuits filed on behalf of the 49-people who died in last summer's crash.

The case now heads to U.S. District Court.

A judge has already ordered that Blue Grass Airport can not be sued.
