Lawsuit landings in Maui, a response

As noted last month in a post, "See the fabulous sites of Hawaii from the air, take notes, sue," the American Association for Justice promoted helicopter tours of Maui as part of its winter convention, while at the same time sponsoring a talk by a California attorney about suing helicopter tour companies.

The lawyer/lecturer in question, Kristine Meredith of the Danko Law Firm in San Mateo, responded at her aviation blog on Feb. 4, a post, "Aviation Attorneys Convene in Hawaii." She posted her Powerpoint presentation and writes, "First, the risks are, for the most part, unknown. Unknown to people travelling to Hawaii, and unknown even to the AAJ, a group which is, generally speaking, keenly aware of industries that place profits over consumer safety. Thus, the title, 'Under the Radar.'"

Sounds like an argument for suing the AAJ if things ever went amiss.
