Legend Airlines

Legend Airlines was an airline headquartered at Dallas Love Field, Texas, United States. Legend operated nonstop flights from its Love Field hub to Washington D. C. Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York City, the first carrier to fly from Love Field to destinations beyond the Wright Amendment five-state region after the opening of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in 1974. Legend's jet airliners were limited to 56 passenger seats by the Wright Amendment, so the aircraft were outfitted in a spacious all-business class layout, aiming at the lucrative business travel market. Legend's initial flights were delayed by lobbying to persuade Congress to modify the Wright Amendment, court battles instigated by American Airlines and the City of Fort Worth, by difficulties obtaining operational approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. Flights began in April 2000, but were suspended indefinitely in December 2000 due to mounting losses, with the airline filing for bankruptcy. Efforts to secure additional financing and restart flights came to naught.

The airline's private Love Field terminal—which was independently owned and leased to the carrier—was condemned under eminent domain and the gates razed after the 2006 Wright Amendment repeal imposed a 20-gate cap at the airport. These events triggered a series of lawsuits that were not settled until 2016. By the early 1960s, Love Field was reaching the limits of its capacity, efforts to share Greater Southwest International Airport in Ft. Worth had proven unsuccessful; the situation was inefficient, in 1964, the Civil Aeronautics Board ordered Dallas and Fort Worth to establish a new joint regional airport. The cities and airlines agreed, signing a 1968 bond ordinance obligating all existing carriers to move to the new regional airport and prohibiting operation of competing municipal airports; the effort culminated in the demolition of GSW, the 1974 opening of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the closure of Love Field to certified air carriers, a corresponding effort to redevelop Love for general aviation.

Southwest Airlines was founded after the 1968 bond ordinance. Dallas and Ft. Worth were unsuccessful in dislodging the airline from Love Field. After the Airline Deregulation Act in 1978, Southwest announced plans to begin interstate service in 1979, angering powerful DFW backers. Acting on their behalf, Jim Wright, member of the U. S. House of Representatives serving Fort Worth and helped pass an amendment to the International Air Transportation Act of 1979 in Congress that restricted passenger service out of Love Field in the following ways: Service using larger mainline airliners could be provided from Love Field only to airports within Texas or to four neighboring U. S. states: Arkansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Airlines could not offer connecting flights, through service on another airline, or through ticketing beyond the five-state region. Flights to other states were allowed only on aircraft with 56 seats or fewer, in an attempt to prohibit mainline passenger service outside of the five-state region.

By the mid 1990s, Southwest Airlines' business within the five-state region had burgeoned, but no carrier had attempted to exploit the 56-seat exemption. Factions in Dallas had begun to view the Wright Amendment as anti-competitive and harmful to local business interests, but its restrictions were backed by the city of Ft. Worth and American Airlines to protect DFW Airport, by local property owners who wanted to reduce jet noise and street traffic around Love Field. Attempts to modify the restrictions had become mired in lawsuits and controversy. Legend Airlines was the brainchild of T. Allan McArtor, former Federal Aviation Administration Administrator, Federal Express executive and a U. S. Air Force pilot, a member of the Air Force precision flying team, the Thunderbirds. McArtor served as airline's President and CEO. In 1996, Dallas aviation company and Legend partner Dalfort Aviation announced that Legend would fly from Love Field using jets with 56 seats—the maximum number allowed for long-haul flights under Wright.

Dalfort would refurbish older McDonnell Douglas DC-9s or Boeing 727s—aircraft that carried 90 or more passengers—with an all-first class configuration and the excess space used for cargo. McArtor and Dalfort CEO Bruce Leadbetter claimed that buying new regional jets with 56 or fewer seats was too expensive and would not provide Dalfort with much-needed overhaul business. However, the United States Department of Transportation general counsel ruled in September 1996 that the 56-seat restriction applied to the "designed capacity" of an airliner rather than to the number of seats installed, prompting Legend to seek a change in the law. S. House to address of the 56-seat requirement. By July 1997, McArtor had enlisted the help of Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, who proposed to change the Wright restrictions to allow Legend to start service using the refurbished planes. On 7 October 1997, despite fierce opposition from the Texas congressional delegation, Shelby's efforts culminated in the passage of a United States Senate funding bill that included his amendment to allow nationwide flights using aircraft reconfigured with 56 seats and to add three new states to the Wright region.

On 9 October 1997, the U. S. House overwhelmingly approved the transportation funding bill containing the Shelby Amendment, with President Bill Clinton expected to promptly sign it into law. Within a month, Ft. Worth was suing

R v Kouri

R v Kouri 2005 SCC 81, was a decision of the Supreme Court of Canada that, along with its sister case R v Labaye, established that harm is the sole defining element of indecency in Canadian criminal law. The case involved a club; the acquittal was upheld by the Supreme Court. In 1997, James Kouri, the owner of the Montreal club Coeur à Corps, was accused of operating a common bawdy-house and fined $7,500 under section 210 of the Criminal Code; the fine came after undercover investigations of the club by police that started in 1996, although the club had been established in 1985. The group sex club was for couples who, upon entering, would be asked if they were a "liberated couple." Only those who replied in the affirmative could enter, the couples would have to pay an entrance fee. On appeal to the Quebec Court of Appeal, Mr. Kouri was acquitted; the majority of the Supreme Court upheld the acquittal. As the test for defining indecency, necessary in order to answer whether Mr. Kouri was guilty of operating a bawdy-house, was set out in R v Labaye, the Court in R v Kouri concentrated on whether sufficient measures were taken by Mr. Kouri so that the public was not exposed to something they would not want to see.

Had Mr. Kouri not done so, he might have been guilty of indecency; the Court took the view that the Crown did not prove its case against Mr. Kouri; as the Court argued, the Crown had no evidence of anyone being forced to watch the sexual activities in the club, nor of anyone in the club being surprised to see group sex. Whether a couple was a "liberated couple" was viewed as a "sufficiently clear and comprehensive" means to ensure only knowing and willing couples would enter, given the context of the outside of the club, which had sexually-themed images present, it thus did not matter that there was no explicit cautionary message at the entrance that sexual conduct might be seen inside. The Crown had pushed its case against Mr. Kouri by saying that it was not known whether every couple was asked if they were "liberated" before they were admitted, indeed some of the police had not been asked that question when they had entered the bar; the police corroborated the evidence that not every couple was asked this with the anecdote that a woman once left the club "upset with her partner".

The Court responded to these concerns by noting that the fact that this woman became upset does not mean she was surprised to see sexual conduct in the club. If she was unhappy to see group sex when the activity occurred, that does not prove she had not agreed to see this activity in the first place. Moreover, while some police were not asked the "liberated couple" question, that did not prove that all other couples were not asked the question the first time they came to the club. Mr. Kouri might have been guilty of indecency had the club encouraged degrading views of certain people; the Court, found no evidence that Mr. Kouri was guilty of this, noting that the activity was consensual and no money was exchanged between the persons having sex. While there was an entrance fee, this was not paid to anyone for a sexual service, but rather to enter the club to use the bar and engage in sexual activity with others.
