Douche Bag Suing United For Beating Wife Drops Lawsuit

Not being certain who is the bigger douche bag, the passenger who sued United Airline for making him drunk so he would beat his wife, or the lawyer who actually agreed to take the case, dropped it today.

Yoichi and Ayisha Shimamoto, probably more Yoichi because if his wife spoke up he would smack her, asked the court on Dec. 23 to voluntarily dismiss the case, which created headlines for the novel legal theory involved. The novel theory fell second to bar that was lowered to subterranium, of cases eel like lawyers would actually take on.

The lawsuit alleged that United's flight attendants were overly generous in serving wine to Yoichi Shimamoto during a nearly 9-hour flight from Osaka, Japan to San Francisco, fueling domestic violence involving the couple shortly after the plane landed.

Shimamoto was arrested and accused of disorderly conduct and battery after he struck his wife as they headed through U.S. Customs following the December 2006 flight.
