French woman sues Boeing seeking at least $276 million over Ethiopian crash

Posted on

PARIS (Reuters) – A French woman whose husband was killed in the March crash of a Boeing 737 MAX airliner in Ethiopia has filed a U.S. lawsuit against the planemaker seeking at least $276 million (217 million pounds) in damages, her lawyer said on Tuesday.

The complaint alleges Boeing failed to inform pilots properly about the risks posed by software meant to prevent the 737 MAX from stalling which repeatedly lowered the plane’s nose due to a faulty sensor data, according to U.S. attorney Nomaan Husain.
