Boeing, makers of Boeing 737 Max have been sued to a US Federal Court, according to a BBC report, the family of Rwandan citizen Jackson Musoni, has filed a lawsuit against Boeing, the maker of the ill-fated Ethiopian boeing 737 Max that crashed just moments after take-off killing everyone on board, all 157 passengers and crew.
In their suit, Jackson’s relatives alleged that Jackson and other passengers in the ill-fated flight died due to a defect in the automated flight control system of the boeing 737 Max, a fault they attributed to Boeing’s negligence.

Recall that after the Ethiopian Airline crash, the second involving the 737 Max within five months, the entire 737 Max fleet was grounded, details obtained from the recovered black box showed that both 737 Max planes crashed under very similar circumstances.
Boeing has announced that “fixes” has been created for the control system linked to the two crashes to prevent a reoccurrence, however, investigators are yet to determine the exact cause of the 737 Max accidents.
