Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Lawrence Meadows, a former Air Force pilot, and 22 year veteran pilot of American Airlines, recently discovered new found evidence that alleges misrepresentations and fraud upon the U.S. District Court by American Airlines. According to court documents (Case No. 2010-cv-22174, Florida Southern District), the motion specifically alleges that the original disability claim report was fabricated. Allegedly, these doctors reports were performed by Western Medical Evaluators, Inc, who was hired by American's Pension Benefits Administration Committee.
Court documents show Meadows submitted new evidence in support of his motion that include a declaration of a doctor, whom Western Medical Evaluators purported to have written and signed the report. The report in question was originally used by American Airlines to terminate Meadows' long-term disability benefits (Case No. 2010-cv-22174, Florida Southern District). According to court documents, FAA Senior Aviation Medical Examiner, Dr. Karen Grant's signed declaration, stated she never had any agreements, contract, or any report letterhead with Western Medical, and further that, "any copy of Western Medical Evaluators, Inc. letterhead purported to have been written and signed by me was not of my doing."
Last week, according to court pleadings, Meadows filled a Rule 60(b) Motion For Relief To Set Aside American's Order and Final Summary Judgement, based on New found evidence (Case No. 2010-cv-22174, Florida Southern District, ECF No. 89). In the motion, Meadows is requesting relief from The Honorable Judge Cecelia Altonaga, to include setting aside American's Final Summary Judgment Ruling, and award him liquidated damages of $151,399 for legal fees and costs.
Meadows is the Founder of the Disabled Airline Pilots Foundation - "Wings of Justice," whose purpose is to enforce absolute individual statutory rights and protections of himself and other similarly situated airline pilots.
