Russian court awards Pavel Bure C$2,750 in suit against British Airways

Bure filed the suit after he was told to leave a plane at Moscow's Domodedovo airport that was preparing to fly to London in October. The suit said the pilot believed he was a soccer hooligan and refused to take off until Bure left the plane.

The incident occurred a day after Russian soccer hooligans disrupted another flight to Britain, reports said.

Bure filed a suit seeking 20 million rubles (C$822,000) in material and moral damages.

The ITAR-Tass news agency quoted his lawyer, Dmitry Ragulin, as saying he would appeal to a higher court to have the award increased.
