Continental says pilots cashed in on sham divorces

HOUSTON (AP) - Continental Airlines Inc. is suing nine pilots that it says got sham divorces so their spouses could collect their retirement benefits while they kept flying.

The airline says the pilots and their spouses remarried after they got the money - between $10 million and $11 million in all.

Continental says most of the pilots involved have been fired or quit, but one was rehired after he promised to pay back the retirement money.

The airline filed the lawsuit Wednesday in federal district court in Houston.
