Airline Challenges Deaf-Blind

Air Canada is challenging a deaf and blind man's right to fly without an attendant playing babysitter. The airline already lost one battle in Canadian court in January over the issue. The lower court ordered the airline to pay Eddy Morten $10,000 in damages. Morten says he’s been self-sufficient all his life, traveled a great deal with a service dog and even won a Paralympic bronze medallist in judo.
