FAA Issues Final Decision in Nashville Airport Litigation

On March 3, 2010, the FAA Assistant Administrator for Civil Rights and Diversity Advocate issued a Final Decision and Order affirming in all respects a Director's Determination issued in favor of Firm client, the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority.  As previously reported in Airport Law News, a concessionaire at the Nashville International Airport filed a complaint against the Airport Authority alleging discrimination under the Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise rules.  The Assistant Administrator determined that the Director correctly found that the Airport Authority did not discriminate against the concessionaire in its administration of the ACDBE program or in its actions regarding the particular concession.
