Suing the FAA...

CFI A&P

Exploring the world one toilet at a time.
Some have been made aware that their medical is apparently under question because of the AME they use in FL.

I fail to see how this is the individual's issue... The FAA seems to think every airman is at fault for picking this AME.

Given the exposure, is anyone aware of a lawsuit in the works...?
The FAA didn't conduct your exam, one of their designees did. The designee didn't follow protocol, and as a result they lost their designation. This does happen periodically with examiners for pilots, mechanics & physicians. The physician in question has already been removed from the FAA process. Sure, it is an inconvenience, but a lawsuit seems like it'll go nowhere since the guy has already been fired and it takes an hour to get another medical from another AME.

Going thru all the work and headache and fees of suing the FAA when you can just take another exam for $95? You're gonna be out the filing fees which are more than the $95 you'll pay for a new medical, plus your time wasted on doing all this crap. Seems like a lawsuit isn't worth anyones time. Let's stick a couple of A330's on jetblues route to LHR while were at it too @jtrain609 :stir:
