A federal judge has warned a woman who tussled with a transportation security agent at Bob Hope Airport over her 93-year-old mother's applesauce that she must file an amended complaint.
Nadine Hays of Camarillo has filed three motions — all of which have been opposed by her defendants — for more time to work on a second amended complaint against the Transportation Security Administration, Burbank Airport Police Department and the city of Burbank. She alleged in the first complaint, which was dismissed in May, that she was arrested in the 2009 incident based on a falsified police report and altered evidence.
On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Patrick Walsh granted Hays an extension until Oct. 10, but said he was “not inclined to grant any further continuances,” according to court records.
Hays said she has been under “extreme pressures,” especially because she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, and has struggled to write a complaint clearly, according to court documents.
