About the Lawsuit
On October 29, 2018, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet crashed after takeoff killing all onboard, followed by another 737 MAX 8 crash on March 10, 2019. Subsequently, Boeing’s worldwide fleet of MAX 8 jets were grounded. On January 8, 2019, the first day of the Class Period, Defendants began making a series of materially false and/or misleading Class Period statements and omissions about the Company’s MAX 8 jets.
On May 8, 2019, the last day of the Class Period, a Bloomberg article titled, “Former Boeing Engineers Say Relentless Cost-Cutting Sacrificed Safety,” reported that the Company had rushed to bring the 737 MAX 8 to market in order to compete with Airbus, as opposed to designing a properly designed aircraft. On May 9, 2019, the Company’s share price fell on unusually heavy trading, damaging investors.
