Fell After Guard Dog Snapped At Her In 2006, Injuring Her
A former NetJets flight attendant is claiming employment
opportunities have “gone to the dogs” for her after an
inflight fall in 2006 and the passenger, actress and singer
Jennifer Lopez, should be held responsible.
Lisa Wilson, 40, filed a $5 million lawsuit against Lopez and
her production company, Nuyorican Productions, in the Brooklyn
Federal Court Thursday for damages and losses resulting from the
fall according to E! News.
Wilson was a flight attendant aboard a July 3, 2006 Gulfstream
flight carrying Lopez, along with her husband, two children and
their German Shepherd guard dog “Floyd” from
Farmingdale, NY to Burbank, CA. Wilson claims the dog lunged at
her, “biting her pant leg” as she walked down the aisle
90 minutes into the flight. According to the complaint, Wilson
"twisted and fell" as a result of the apparent attack "injuring her
lower back" in the process.
According to the court documents, Wilson began treatment within
days of the fall and underwent surgery in April 2007.
Wilson is claiming a “substancial economic loss”
from the fact she still remains in treatment and has been unable to
resume her work as a flight attendant due to the injuries she
In the suit, Wilson said the German Shepherd appeared to be "a
well behaved guard dog," but that Lopez insisted on giving Wilson
warnings about how to behave around the animal in flight.
Wilson claims Lopez "knew or should have known that the animal
had vicious propensities" and is liable for damages as a result
– seven figures worth.
Lopez has yet to comment, and we’re sure the dog will
remain silent on the matter too.
