A horrible legal precedent may have been established in a Chicago courtroom on March 8, 2004, in the case of Canty (N5323K)/Walker (N2071L) vs. Segal (N305MM), in which the defendant, a general aviation pilot dealing with a landing gear problem, was found to have been negligent for allegedly monopolizing the Meigs Field tower frequency and distracting two pilots from their see-and-avoid responsibilities. Walker, the pilot of a Beechcraft A-36, along with two passengers, and Canty, the pilot of a Cessna C-172 with three souls on board, collided in midair on July 19,1997, killing all.
