John DeTomaso, a cargo employee for Pan American World Airways, thought he had a good idea on how to make a few extra bucks. So, in 1978, he paid $300 for unclaimed merchandise that the airline stored in bins and periodically sold to the public sight unseen. In the luck of the draw, two of his bins contained a surfboard, Indian-style costume jewelry and cheap clothing, he said. Another bin contained 13,000 watch batteries.

The state Supreme Court on Monday overturned a $565,000 jury award to an airline worker who claimed that he had been falsely accused in front of his 10-year-old son of stealing cargo from his employer. The justices concluded unanimously that federal law barred the claims in state court for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress brought against Pan American World Airways by John DeTomaso, a cargo delivery man at Los Angeles International Airport.
