  • Judge rules in favor of American Airlines in Orbitz dispute
    Orbitz Worldwide last month asked a federal court to force American Airlines to abide by an alleged settlement agreement, but a judge on Tuesday ruled against the online travel-reservations firm. Orbitz said it had reached a tentative agreement with the carrier over settlement of an antitrust lawsuit but did not have a signed agreement. "While this court certainly encourages settlement agreements, it simply is disinclined to enforce anything short of a final, signed agreement," U.S. District Judge Terry R. Means said.
