9th Circuit Court Ruling Imperils Airline Industry

My God, It’s Full of …

A legal storm is brewing in California—a state that has doggedly pursued and deservedly earned a reputation for breathtaking short-sightedness. High taxes, endless regulations, massive litigation, rising crime, increasing homelessness, and a political prioritization of social and environmental policies over practical business solutions have precipitated an exodus of small and large companies from the Golden State.

The property in question is neither a house, nor an automobile, nor even a collection of Richard Nixon campaign buttons; rather it’s a derelict Boeing 747 that’s been parked in front of the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum for eight years. McMinnville Properties, an outfit controlled by wine entrepreneur Bill Stoller—who also owns the museum—seeks to acquire the airplane. The company filed suit last October against the 747’s owner, a Kansas City aircraft parts and leasing operation called Jet Midwest, which bought the aircraft in 2014 after Evergreen International Aviation filed bankruptcy.

Airspace Restrictions Elicit Russian Threat

Row Over Expelled Diplomats Intensifies

In February, the United States expelled 12 diplomats from Russia’s New York-based mission to the UN, accusing the staff of engaging in espionage activities.
