Doe v. United Airlines, Inc., B192865

In an action involving a minor's claims against United Airlines arising out of a sexual assault, summary judgment for defendant is affirmed as plaintiff could not show that she had suffered bodily injury within the meaning of the "Warsaw Convention". However, grant of plaintiff's motion for a new trial is reversed where, although plaintiff submitted evidence that an assault caused post-traumatic stress, she established none of the required elements of "newly discovered evidence" to support a new trial.
