Sounds like a runny-nosed kid in for attention.
A Yale University student is suing US Airways for $1 million over an Xbox 360 he says was lost on a flight.
Jesse Maiman says that the 360, which had a specialized hard drive, disappeared from his luggage during a flight from New Haven, Conn. to Cincinnati in December.
He is seeking $1,700 for the 360 and the maximum allowable damages, which is $1 million.
A US Airways spokeswoman points out that the government limits liability for lost luggage to $3,000 per a bag.

If he looses, airline will probably counter-sue for about $400,000 in court costs (because you know they will have an awesome lawyer)
