ORLANDO. Fla. - The chemical exposure personal injury lawsuit of a flight crew member against the manufacturers of the aircraft on which he worked was dismissed May 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida for lack of jurisdiction; the plaintiff failed to meet his burden to establish diversity, according to the presiding judge (Chad Blatchley v. McDonnell Douglas Corp., et al., No. 12-1605, M.D. Fla.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 66954).
