Theophilus Maranga is suing two airlines for $10 million due to injuries sustained, physically and emotionally, when an admitted terrorist was able to get aboard their plane

The lawsuit said Maranga lost a tooth in the act of foiling the attack, which also left him with injured ribs, permanent numbness in his hands and a pain in his neck that hampers his movements.
In the court papers, Maranga accuses Delta Air Lines and Air France-KLM of negligence for 'allowing a bomber to board their aircraft with an explosive device.'
Maranga's attorney, Neil Grimaldi, called his client a 'hero' in an interview with Reuters on Thursday.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab had demanded new counsel, claiming his standby lawyer was ignoring him. 

  Abdulmutallab, who studied engineering in London and the Middle East,had been representing himself after firing his original attorneys in 2010. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds then appointed Chambers, who assisted the case during the abbreviated trial.

Abdulmutallab is now slated to be sentenced on Feb. 16, after a delay was granted to allow a pre-sentencing report to be reviewed by attorney Chambers. He faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole.

The Nigerian student-turned-Al Qaeda operative was convicted of eight counts of terrorism for trying to detonate a bomb concealed in his underwear on an Amsterdam-to-Detroit jetliner carrying more than 300 people. The plot was botched when passengers and crew members overcame him. He suffered burns to his genitals and legs in the incident.
