TWU International Equity Update
We continue to receive questions concerning the American Airlines equity lawsuit. The latest update is below:
The Cmpany and the lawyers representing the Early Out recepients made their arguments in front of Judge James R. Browning, on December 13, 2016.
According to the information available on the Appeals Court website a decision on these cases can take anywhere from 3 months to a year. Although, they also mention the fact there is no set timetable for a decision.
