Ryanair sues Twitter users in LA

It has been reported that Ryanair has filed suit with the Los Angeles Superior Court against several unknown Twitter users listed as ‘DOES 1 through 100’ that it says threatened its aircraft.

The civil extortion suit states: “Within the last year, Does 1-100 have used pseudonyms, including [three named Twitter accounts] to tweet threats to Ryanair.”
One example of a tweet given says: “Hey @Ryanair Pay $50000000 to [named email address] or I blow up 15 Of your planes”.

Ryanair claims these threats constitute extortion and have damaged the airline. It is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, costs and an injunction requiring the defendants to remove the offending tweets. Ryanair has refused to comment on the cases.
