    A Houston man has filed a lawsuit in Harris County court against Continental Airlines after he alleged airline personnel in 2009 kicked him off a flight and left him stranded 1,500 miles from home because he was using a “foreign language.”
    Court documents claim Mo Hussein was on the return leg of a Houston-to-Minneapolis round trip when he was asked to move seats twice, with no explanation, before flight attendants and cabin crew members forced him to leave the plane after an unscheduled landing. Hussein’s attorney also alleges in the documents that his client was “paraded before the assembled passengers in a manner customarily reserved for persons caught in the act of wrongdoing.”
    The suit seeks damages from Continental, formerly based in Houston and now part of Chicago-based United Continental Holdings Inc. (NYSE: UAL), including mental anguish and pain, emotional distress, exemplary damages and attorney fees.
