Judge: Lawsuit against UPS that began with stink bomb pranks actually stinks itself – Philly.com

A federal judge last week ruled four former United Parcel Service employees couldn’t move forward with a wrongful termination lawsuit stemming from a series of stink bombs set off at the UPS depot near the Philadelphia International Airport.

“The Philadelphia airport has doubtless been the site of many indignities,” U.S. District Judge Felipe Restrepo wrote Thursday in a memorandum accompanying his order that dismissed the suit against UPS. “Travelers who battled security lines and boarding mobs in 2006 and 2007, though, likely remained oblivious to a different plague of that time: a rash of ‘stink bombs’ released at the UPS airport facility.”
