Boeing Board Accused Of Safety Neglect In Chancery 737 Suit

By Jeff Montgomery (June 25, 2021, 8:21 PM EDT) -- An attorney for Boeing Inc. stockholders told a Delaware vice chancellor on Friday that company directors considered safety "something for other people to worry about" until after the deadly crashes of 737 Max jetliners in late 2018 and early 2019.

Arguing against a Boeing motion to dismiss a derivative suit seeking damages for the company based on company officer and director failures of loyalty, care and oversight, Joel Friedlander of Friedlander & Gorris P.A. told Vice Chancellor Morgan T. Zurn that directors made no effort to assure they had regular reporting on safety issues before the crashes.
