NO NEW TRIAL FOR ATA AIRLINES

A federal judge will not allow a new trial in a lawsuit, which ATA Airlines was awarded $66 million in damages from FedEx following the cancellation of a deal in 2008 that threw the airline into bankruptcy.

The jury took less than three hours last October to decide FedEx was in breach of contract but FedEx claims the jury’s verdict went against evidence presented at trial and asked the judge to reconsider the nearly $66 million in damages. Both requests were declined by US District Court Judge Richard Young on Wednesday.
