Cuban-American sues American Airlines, Latam Airlines for 'trafficking' in Havana airport

Cuban-American sues American Airlines, Latam Airlines for 'trafficking' in Havana airportA Miami-based law firm filed a lawsuit on Wednesday on behalf of a Cuban-American who claims to be the rightful owner of Havana’s international airport against American Airlines and the Latam Airlines Group for “trafficking” in the property he says the Cuban government stole. The case is one of a slew filed in U.S. courts since the Trump administration in May implemented a long-dormant and controversial law allowing U.S. citizens to sue foreign firms and Cuban entities over their use of properties expropriated after Cuba’s 1959 revolution.
