Doggone It! FA Sues J.Lo For Inflight Pooch Pounce

Fell After Guard Dog Snapped At Her In 2006, Injuring Her Back

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 sustained.

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.
