Boeing board faces lawsuit over handling 737 MAX safety

Monday, 18. November 2019 23:30

The board of Boeing Company is facing a shareholder lawsuit over its failure to detect the safety issues with the 737 MAX planes before the two deadline crashes involving the model.

The lawsuit was filed by the Kirby Family Partnership and claims the aerospace giant's board's actions hurt the company "through loss of credibility in the marketplace, a damaged reputation and billions in potential business costs and liability."

Kirby accused Boeing's directors of failing to test the safety software and training pilots adequately for the new system. The lawsuit also alleges that the board didn't react to the issue soon enough after the crashes happened.
