We brought you this story back in August when Christopher Bridgeman and Martin Borger discovered, to their horror, that Continental Airlines had removed a giant dildo from their bag, greased it up with lube (maybe??), and taped it to the top of their bag for all of the world to see.
So what happened to the lawsuit that they filed against the airline?
Find out after the jump!
A federal judge determined that Continental Airlines isn't liable for the humiliation the couple faced.
Courthouse News Service writes:
"A federal judge dismissed claims that Continental Airlines took a dildo from the luggage of a gay couple, greased it and taped it to the outside of their bag.
U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt dismissed the complaint Thursday.
The Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air, commonly known as the Montreal Convention, pre-empts the claims for damages related to the mishandling of luggage, according to the ruling.
Adopted in 1999, the Montreal Convention sets conditions and limits for the damages that passengers can seek.
Borger and Bridgeman were unable to circumvent the treaty to find relief, according to the four-page order."
Looks like Continental is getting off scott-free.
Does this mean we have to start leaving our sex toys at home?!
What do you think about the Judge Hoyt's ruling, Instincters?
