BURLINGTON, Vt. – A New Mexico woman kicked off an airplane at the Burlington International Airport three years ago for breast feeding her baby is suing Delta Airlines.
The Burlington Free Press says negotiations failed to reach a settlement between the airline and Emily Gillette.
On Wednesday Gillette filed suit in U.S. District Court in Burlington.
Gillette was ordered off a Delta Connections plane by a flight attendant after twice refusing an order to cover up while she breast fed her baby prior to take off.
Gillette's lawsuit says she felt "shame and embarrassed" after being ordered off the plane.
Delta Airlines refused to comment on the suit, but a spokesman says the airline supports a mother's right to breast-feed.
