New York: Ex-Yankee Stadium guard sues Delta for drugs planted in luggage.
A former Yankee Stadium security guard who was wrongfully busted for cocaine possession at Kennedy Airport in 2010 is suing Delta Airlines, claiming that they allowed his luggage to be tampered with en route from Guyana. Five years after the incident, the case kicked off Monday with opening statements in Brooklyn federal court. Roger Levans was charged with trying to smuggle cocaine into Kennedy on Dec. 29, 2010, after customs agents found three bricks of the drug in his luggage. But after a three-month investigation into the case, all charges were dropped against Levans when the feds determined that his suitcases had been broken into.
“The federal prosecutor determined that plaintiff’s luggage had been tampered with while in the sole custody of the defendant and the charges against defendant were subsequently dropped,” according to his Brooklyn federal lawsuit.
But in his lawsuit against Delta, Levans said the damage was already done before the charges were dropped. Levans was imprisoned and arraigned for trial before he was discovered to be innocent. As a consequence, he suffered job loss and social stigma. More information is available at this link:http://nypost.com/2015/12/07/ex-yankee-stadium-guard-sues-delta-for-getting-him-fired/
