What Happens in a TMX and TJX Lawsuit?

The TJX lawsuit is the seventh lawsuit against a major carrier, but it is probably not going to be the final as Card Activation announced a second statement that over 400 legal letters have already been sent out to other carriers advising them that they are in violation of the companies’ patent. This case is just the latest in a long line of patent infringement suits between carriers and distributors. This case is different in a number of ways. The first is that it is a lawsuit on patents, rather than an attempt to force a carriage change. It also involves a significant number of operators, all of which are highly successful with a very high percentage of overall cases.

TJX Lawsuit

In 2021, Michael Johnson, Jr., took his case to the Federal Circuit. He argued that the carrier, United States West Coast Lines, had adopted a policy that required drivers to obtain a specialized license to operate tractor trailers, and that this policy was written when the company did not have the financial assets to support it. He further argued that the policy was so vague that it allowed any and all drivers to violate it. His main point was that if the carrier was worth a fortune, then the policy should have been obvious to them. It was ultimately ruled in his favor, and United States West Coast Lines was ordered to pay Mr. Johnson a whopping $2.35 million for illegally requiring drivers to obtain a license to operate their trailers.

This case became quite public in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, when residents of New Orleans began posting videos of themselves using their newly acquired power generators and video phones.

When one of the videos was released, it quickly went viral. The viral nature of the video caused Mr. Johnson to become the talk of the nation. Unfortunately for him, the storm quickly stopped, and Mr. Johnson lost his home and all of his belongings. The entire incident has caused quite a stir in Congress as some have called for the release of these videos in order to force the airlines to offer compensation to the residents of New Orleans.

Now the story is that Mr. Johnson has filed a Class-Action Lawsuit against United States West Coast Lines, alleging violations of his rights under the ADA.

This is not the first time he has done so, as previous cases have failed to receive any real damages from the airline. Unfortunately, Mr. Johnson has run into a brick wall with this lawsuit. An ADA lawyer who has handled Class-Action Lawsuits has informed me that the courts have ruled in the past that an individual cannot sue another person for ADA violation until they have suffered some actual harm. This means that an attorney cannot file a lawsuit until a personal injury is sustained. However, there have been instances when individuals have been able to successfully sue an airline for statements made by a flight attendant, which directly lead to their injury.

So, what can you expect from this case?

Well, the plaintiff’s lawyer is going to ask for a temporary restraining order, and for temporary injunctions. If the airlines do not respond positively to these requests then the lawyers are going to move to have the case moved to court. It is important to note that, if the airlines choose to fight these motions, then you may find yourself in an expensive courtroom battle. In addition to this, if the case does go to court and a judge rules against you; they may also award compensatory and punitive damages.

As you can see, a TMX lawsuit is not as cut-and-dry as one would want you to believe.

The first step would be to hire a lawyer with experience in handling this type of cases to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process. If your case goes to court, it will most likely end up in court, with a judge ruling in favor of the airline, so finding a good lawyer would be very beneficial.
