Boeing sued in chicago over Nigerian plane crash

An Illinois man whose wife died in a tragic plane crash in Nigeria in early June brought a lawsuit in Federal Court in Chicago against Boeing Co. The suit naming Boeing, the Chicago based airplane manufacturer that bought the ill-fated plane’s manufacturer and engine maker, stated that the passenger plane experienced engine failure before it came down over the African nation in early June. The lawsuit points at least partial blame towards the companies that designed, manufactured and sold the aircraft.

According to the State Department, nine Americans were killed in the accident. A U.S. National Transportation Safety Board investigator was sent to Africa to assist Nigerian officials in their investigation.
