Muilenburg’s departure was long overdue, said Robert Clifford, who is representing dozens of families who are suing Boeing after losing relatives in the second Boeing 737 Max 8 crash, which occurred March 10 in Ethiopia. “Mr. Muilenburg and other Boeing leaders deliberately put the desire for a heightened stock price and profits over safety by allowing the 737 Max 8 to stay in service after the Lion Air crash” in October 2018, Clifford said. Boeing directors, he said, deserve no praise for ousting Muilenburg now. Read full article here.
