Neil Before Your Corporate Overlords

Watching the horrific video of the Doctor being forcefully, brutally removed from a United Airlines flight filled me with disgust. Here was a man who expected a modicum of decent treatment from the airline, but was beaten and ejected because the airline overbooked the flight he was on.

In light of Neil Gorsuch's dissent in a court decision regarding a trucker in danger of dying of hypothermia, I have to wonder if he would rule in favor of United Airlines should this passenger sue. In Gorsuch's world, does some random customer of a big corporation have a constitutional right not to be bloodied?

Pardon the lack of linkage... I'm dashing this one off quickly on my phone before heading out for recreational purposes.
