The story of former JetBlue pilot Clayton Osbon's in air meltdown and subsequent emergency landing in Amarillo has a new twist.

Ten passengers of the flight that was bound for Las Vegas but diverted to Rick Husband Airport have filed a lawsuit against the airline.

The lawsuit was filed in the state Supreme Court in Queens and claims the airline was 'grossly negligent' in allowing Osbon to fly.

JetBlue has refused to comment on the pending litigation.

Osbon has a hearing Friday morning in Amarillo to determine is competency to stand trial on charges related to his outburst and emergency landing.
