“The story always comes back to the same thing: that Boeing was advancing the sale of this plane to capture market share, to capture the profits and cash flow that goes with it, and safety was treated as something that would occur without a great deal of focus,” said Robert Clifford, a Chicago lawyer who has sued Boeing on behalf of victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash. “That’s just never the case in engineering.” Read full article here.

Barron’s – January 2020
Robert Clifford, Lead Counsel in the U.S. federal district court litigation involving the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302’s Boeing 737 Max8 jet on March 10, 2019, in Ethiopia, interviewed by Barron’s. Clifford thinks Boeing (BA) was aware of MAX issues, especially after the first fatal crash involving a Lion Air 737 MAX jet, yet the company let the plane keep flying. That, according to Clifford, exposes the company to potential punitive damages that could be higher than is typical in other aviation accidents he has worked on. Read full article here.
