*We shouldn’t be too surprised by this news but it looks like David A.D. Dao, the Kentucky man who was dragged off that United flight, is getting ready to sue.

Lawyers for Dao have gone to court in an attempt to preserve evidence in the case, asking the airline and Chicago aviation police to save surveillance videos, cockpit voice recordings, incident reports, and passenger, crew and employee lists for use in an impending suit. They also asked for information on United’s protocol for removing passengers, and the personal file of the man who pulled Dao off the flight.
