A child-abduction lawsuit involving charter and aircraft management services operator Executive Jet Management (EJM) has been settled out of court, according to attorneys for the plaintiff, Cornelia Streeter. The parties are bound by the settlement conditions not to disclose terms, but a source close to the case said the amount was "considerably less" than the original award of $27 million.

The lawsuit had its origins in the 2001 charter of an EJM Gulfstream by Anwar Wissa Jr., former husband of Cornelia Streeter and father of their two children. Wissa, an Egyptian national, took the children with him to Egypt on the flight.

After the abduction, Streeter, who had been granted custody of the children, engaged in a successful legal battle to have them returned. She also filed a lawsuit against EJM, claiming that the charter operator had failed to question the absence of the mother or to ask for a consent form granting her permission for the minor children to travel abroad in the father's custody.

““I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht.” —musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase  Source: Rolling Stone   ”
