Prosecutors urge Justice Department to file criminal charges against Boeing over 737 Max

·1 min

Prosecutors are encouraging the US Justice Department to bring criminal charges against Boeing regarding safety issues surrounding its 737 Max. The Justice Department has yet to make a final decision. The potential charges add to Boeing’s already damaged reputation. In addition to the two fatal crashes of the 737 Max, the company has faced scrutiny over the safety and quality of its jets. Boeing had previously settled charges of defrauding the Federal Aviation Administration, but the recent safety incident involving a 737 Max has put the settlement into question. Boeing has stated that it will contest the claims.
