[JURIST] The US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York [official website] on Thursday made public a complaint seeking over $1 million in fines against American Airlines [corporate website]. The complaint alleges that a Federal Aviation Administration [official website] inspector observed the airline as it violated numerous federal air-safety regulations and "endangered the life and property" of passengers when it allowed a plane leaking fuel to continue to fly in November 2003. The inspector allegedly cautioned the flight crew about the problem but no record was made of the incident and no repairs were performed for weeks. A spokesman for American's parent company AMR Corporation declined to comment on the complaint. AP has more.
