Welcome to the Drone Law Today Podcast! In this episode, we look at the famous case of Equusearch v. FAA. Texas Equusearch is a search-and-rescue organization that uses cutting-edge technology to find missing persons. They have successfully used drones to find missing persons and the remains of deceased persons for years. You’d be hard pressed to find a more humanitarian use for drones!
The Equusearch case started when the FAA sent emails to the organization telling them to stop using drones! Attorney Brendan Schulman (the “grand master” of U.S. Drone Lawyers) filed a lawsuit challenging the FAA’s emails & arguing that Equusearch should be able to keep on flying.
The case resulted in a dismissal of Equusearch’s claims. Usually this would mean Equusearch “lost” the case. In this case, things were different! Listen in to learn how Equuesearch “won” by “losing.”
Nothing in this podcast is legal advice! Please don’t make legal decisions for yourself or your business before consulting counsel of your choice.
