March 2006 – A judgment for $25 million in a case where a Boca Raton chaplain flying a Cessna 182 from the Bahamas to Florida collided with a Cessna 172 over Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier in Florida, killing five people in the two aircraft.  The court found that the FAA air traffic controllers in the towers directing the chaplain’s plane had been understaffed and distracted.
