Asiana decides NOT to sue KTVU

According to a report from Reuters this morning, Asiana Airlines has come to its senses.  

Asiana executives have changed their minds, and will not sue KTVU for its report on July 12 that erroneously identified the pilots of Asiana Flight 214 with offensive names.  

Reuters reports that Asiana's statement reads:  “Asiana Airlines has decided not to proceed with the case since KTVU has issued a formal apology and in order for us to focus all our efforts on managing the aftermath of the accident."

KTVU did the right thing by promptly apologizing for its erroneous report.  Asiana threatened to sue after KTVU apologized.

Today, Asiana did the right thing by deciding not to sue ... even though it should never have made the threat in the first place because it had no basis to sue and KTVU had already apologized.  See my post of July 15.
