We can comment on this but we can't comment on the Suffolk home invasions because we all know the nationality of the perps.

People will sue over anything. She's in the ground now, so what does it matter? He should be thankful that they didn't charge him extra flight time and storage fees.

Live illegals have no problem getting here but even getting the dead ones home is a major problem.

Geez, this guy might be from Ecuador but he certainly has acclimated to america. He's suing because someone made a mistake? No one lost their life or was injured. Is this a lame attempt to make his wife's death profitable? Sure seems like it. As Don King is fond of saying "only in america'.

I wonder whether his fluency in English could have contributed to the mistake?

Or the airline worker's.....

She finally had the correct documents and never had a chance.

According to the Daily News she was finally located when she went overly ripe.
