Going on his actions on the aircraft, I don't think he's going to let this go. He knows his rights, and he has the law (not to mention the public and the media) on his side.

UA have already lost a billion dollars in value, which before the days of social media and video phones, would have all been swept under the carpet, with a barrage of PR reps, and the Dr would have been discredited as a rowdy and disruptive passenger who disobeyed legal directives from the police, despite their gentle and meek demeanour escorting him from his seat.

Bad luck for UA that isn't going to wash with all the actual evidence that is available today. UA are going down for this.
