In September 2011, a U.S. District Court judge enjoined the pilots union at US Airways from orchestrating an illegal job action aimed at disrupting the carrier’s flight operations. Compass Lexecon’s Darin Lee testified on behalf of US Airways at the hearing. Dr. Lee’s expert report and testimony analyzing the statistical impact of pilot job actions on the carriers’ on-time performance and cancellations were frequently cited in the Judge’s order. A Compass Lexecon team including Eric Amel, Respina Jani, Ethan Singer, and Diane Lee in our Boston office supported Dr. Lee. We worked with Robert Siegel, Mark Robertson, and Mike McGuinness at O’Melveny & Myers LLP, who successfully represented US Airways.
