as we know United Airlines originally blamed MR Dao for the incident where he was selected to be removed from the plane likely due to racial profiling.

He was then beaten up and physically dragged off the plane.

The CEO of United Airlines decided the appropriate response was to blame Mr Dao and Defame him in the media.
After public out cry he refused to step down and hesitated to absolve Mr Dao from blame for the incident.

These are not the actions or behaviors of a company that is looking to settle outside of court. These are the actions of a company that is looking to press charges.

Now from what i have heard legally if they sell the ticket they can still ask you to leave for any reason. Mr Dao did not do this and so apparently legally they were within their right to physically beat him up and drag him of the plane.

However Mr Dao by refusing to be racially abused and politely accept been forcibly beaten up and kicked of a plane of which he had paid for a ticket on, has caused bad publicity for United Airlines and therefore United Airlines will likely press charges against him.

Mr Dao who practiced medicine and also has some semi professional poker experience will likely have a net-worth in the 7 figures. I am assuming this will not cover the full damages so MR Dao will be forced to forgo all his salary apart from that necessary for rent and food I assume he owns his own property/properties but these of course will be seized after the lawsuit.

reluctantly they are likely suing him already but probably have some sort of gagging order in place.

They aren't going to be suing him, he has already instructed lawyers. One of whom is a specialist in aviation litigation.

So what Brock Turner was caught Raping a girl and got 3 months
I have seen it time and time again in the news and from personal experience Law is determined not by who is in the right but who has the most money. I don't know how lawyers can do it but good ones always can Mr Dao is screwed pure and simple.

I think you misread my title easily done, I was asking how much the Airline will get out of suing Mr Dao, not how much Mr Dao would get from suing the airline.

You asked an interesting question and then proceeded to make it ridiculous.
Imo they will settle out of court as it serves no interest to United have it go to court. Mr Dao is probably besieged by law firms trying to get him to sign up. Id be surprised if its less than $0.5m and more likely to be $1m +.

Would have to look at comparable compensation settlements with the police beating black people up, although I dont think its anywhere near as serious. Someone was heavy handed and they dragged him off, which is different m a police beating.

Well I guess if I am right you will never know because United Airlines would win a gagging order regarding that. If your right we will hear about it in the media regarding the settlement or his successful lawsuit.

If we don't hear about it in the Media we can successfully conclude that Mr Dao did not win or court and was not offered any money in settlement.
The likelihood is in this scenario is that he got clobbered legally.

Just remember that in the coming months and years when we hear nothing about his settlement or court case.

Well if your referring to Mr Daos Lawsuit against United Airlines going up against a Billion Dollar Company sure I think that is a highly probable outcome.

However in regards to United Airlines vs Mr Dao I think they will crucify him in court but you could still be right because Legal fees may bankrupt Mr Dao.

He will be instructing lawyers on a no-win no-fee basis. They are queueing up to take his action against United. It won't cost him a cent.

Do you have sources for this that Lawyers have offered him this?

Surely No win no Fee has its flaws eg you may not owe a fee to your lawyers but you would have to pay the other sides legal costs?

I suspect that it will be settled our of court, with the terms kept private. However, it would be interesting to see it go to trial.

The CEO should step-down - his initial reaction, on the information available then (and now), was obviously going to bring the company into disrepute.

I've not looked into this case, but it does seem very odd that they let all the seats be filled, then tried to find four for their own employees. I would have expected passengers to have been denied boarding, rather than allowed on, then removed. That might make it legally more interesting (not that I'm a lawyer). Whatever, his removal, by non-United staff, appeared more violent than necessary.

Wouldn't it have been interesting if a citizens' arrest had been made for assault?!

What Doonesbury says is correct. He wont pay anything and law firms will be falling over themselves to represent him.

this is the daughter of one of the United Airlines Staff. She is not a Lawyer she was stupid enough to be pro Hillary before, she still makes a compelling case for Dismissing Mr Daos case.

Imagine if instead of this girl United Airlines get world class lawyers.

Mr Dao is in serious trouble.

Nope I'm entirely guessing the basis on which Dr Dao is retaining his legal team - but United have admitted fault. Munoz has said Dr Dao was "mistreated". Dao won't lose.

One of the lawyers he has retained is a big shot personal injury lawyer with $1bn settlements behind him.
