As reported by Reuters, “[a]n Ethiopian Airlines passenger jet bound for Nairobi crashed minutes after take-off . . ., killing all 157 people on board, raising questions about the safety of the Boeing 737 MAX 8, a new model that also crashed in Indonesia in October.” Chicago Tribune, reports that “Boeing faces the prospect of substantial payouts to the families of passengers if it’s found responsible for both the Indonesia and Ethiopia crashes. But legal experts say the second one could prove even more damaging for the Chicago-based company. That’s because plaintiffs will argue the manufacturer was put on notice by the earlier tragedy that there was something dangerously wrong with its planes that should have been fixed.” The article continues, “[a]nother litigation headache for Boeing is the possibility that airlines may sue for the money they’ve lost by being forced to ground the 737 Max 8’s in their fleets, possibly through April or longer.”
