By Fox News. A 23-year-old woman from California has filed a lawsuit against Delta Air Lines, claiming that they failed to detain a passenger who sexually assaulted her on a flight earlier this year.
Delany Luh, the founder of the fashion brand I Am Plenty, alleges she was assaulted by an inebriated male passenger on a June 16 flight from Chicago to Los Angeles. In a lawsuit filed by Knoxville-based attorney James Friauf, Luh claims the man was served between six and eight alcoholic beverages within the span of only a few hours, the Knoxville News Sentinel reports.
Per the lawsuit, Luh claims the assailant became more “bizarre and harassing” throughout the flight, trying to engage her in conversation about his marriage. At one point, she says he pretended to make a phone call to a fake woman named “Molly” to discuss how Luh wasn’t “being nice” to him, and then made derogatory comments about Luh to the fictional friend for Luh to hear, according to the complaint. . .
Luh says she tried to avoid the man until she eventually fell asleep, only to be “startled awake by an abrupt discomfort in her vaginal area,” and witnessing the man’s hand in her pants “digitally penetrating her vagina.” . . .
Luh was reseated, and believed the airline would contact the authorities regarding her complaint, the News Sentinel reports. Instead, she contends that the airline “allowed Assailant to exit the aircraft without incident or consequence for his abhorrent actions,” per the complaint.

Woman Accuses Delta Air Lines of Serving Drunk Passenger Booze, Ignoring Sexual Assault
By Knox News. A 23-year-old fashion designer is suing Delta Air Lines after she says flight attendants continued to ply a drunken passenger with booze and – after he groped her – offered her a $200 voucher for her troubles.
Knoxville attorney James Friauf has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court on behalf of Delany Luh, the founder of the street wear and fitness fashion label I Am Plenty Apparel, against Delta over the June 16 incident. . .
“During the conversation, (Luh) observed (the man’s) eyes were watery and bloodshot,” Friauf wrote. “The smell of alcohol was noticeably strong on his breath. As assailant spoke, he leaned in close to (Luh), making her feel uncomfortable.
“Despite Assailant’s obviously-inebriated state, Delta employees continuously served Assailant alcohol during the flight,” the lawsuit continued. “Upon information and belief, Delta served Assailant as many as six to eight alcoholic beverages in the course of less than two hours.” (Read more from “Woman Accuses Delta Air Lines of Serving Drunk Passenger Booze, Ignoring Sexual Assault” HERE)
