A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by former TWA employees against American Airlines and the union representing American’s flight attendants. American’s parent, AMR Corp., bought bankrupt TWA in 2001 and put TWA workers at the bottom of its seniority ladder. The former TWA workers, lacking seniority, were laid off when American cut thousands of jobs after the terror attacks of September 2001. The workers sued in 2002, challenging the way that American and the Association of Professional Flight Attendants decided the seniority issue. American and the union asked that the lawsuit be dismissed, and U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon of the Eastern District of New York approved the motion on Tuesday. “I’m very pleased we’re on the other side of this chapter in our history,” said union president Tommi Hutto-Blake. She called it a giant step for the union. AMR shares fell 13 cents to close at $10.50 Friday on the New York Stock Exchange. Its shares are up from a 52-week low of $6.34 a share in late October.
