American Airlines backtracks after blaming child for being filmed in bathroom

The airline said the legal defense was made in error

American Airlines has disavowed a response from its lawyers that blamed a 9-year-old girl for using an airplane bathroom with an active recording device, allegedly placed there by a former employee.

The airline said that what it described as "outside legal counsel retained with our insurance company" made an error in filing a legal argument Monday responding to a lawsuit filed by the girl's family.

The girl is one of several children whom Estes Carter Thompson III allegedly filmed in lavatories while working as a flight attendant. He was arrested earlier this year and next is due in front of a judge on July 1.
