Following the March 2019 Ethiopian Airlines aircraft ET302 crash, families of those killed in a plane tragedy involving Boeing’s contentious 737 Max have filed a lawsuit against the US government. They accuse the US of secretly drafting a Deferred Punishment Agreement (DPA) that would allow Boeing to avoid criminal prosecution.

Both catastrophes were eventually determined to have been caused by faulty flight control software, with a total of 346 persons dead. The motion, filed in a Texas District Court, accuses the US Department of Justice of concealing the existence of a criminal investigation into the corporation and of a misleading family of ET302 victims by denying the existence of such an inquiry while working with Boeing to settle it. Boeing had agreed to pay $2.5 billion as part of the Justice Department’s settlement.
