first_imgBoeing and the plaintiffs’ lawyers agreed to brief the court on the outcome of a conference call with NTSB assistant general counsel Benjamin Allen scheduled for Thursday. Chicago-based Boeing is in the process of settling a separate batch of lawsuits related to the Lion Air crash, but families of the Ethiopian crash are seeking a jury trial. Following 737 MAX testimony from Boeing executives at congressional hearings in Washington, Ethiopian crash victim lawyers want to know whether the planemaker hid materials.Dan Webb, a lawyer for Boeing, rejected in court the notion that documents have been hidden, saying that some “haven’t been produced yet.” “Boeing takes very seriously its legal obligations and is working with the plaintiffs in good faith, and consistent with our obligations as a technical advisor to the NTSB, to provide the information they need to pursue their claims,” the company said in an emailed statement, adding that it was cooperating fully with investigative authorities. A Lion Air investigation faulted Boeing’s design of the 737 MAX but said the airline also made mistakes. The Ethiopian probe is still ongoing, nearly a year after the crash.Topics : “They’re hot documents,” Robert Clifford, lead counsel for the plaintiffs, told reporters, saying some show what and when Boeing knew about factors that played a role in the Lion Air accident. Boeing has argued that the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is restricting release of the documents under international guidelines on crash probes and that they are confidential. The plane, once Boeing’s fastest-selling jet, has been grounded globally since mid-March while Boeing addresses software and training issues involved in both disasters, costing the planemaker nearly $19 billion. The NTSB seemed to switch its stance on some of the documents in a Feb. 18 letter to Boeing, one topic of Wednesday’s hearing in US federal court in Chicago before US Magistrate Judge David Weisman.  Boeing Co and lawyers representing families of victims of a 737 MAX crash agreed in court on Wednesday to hold a conference call with US government crash probe authorities over access to documents related to the now-grounded aircraft’s design, development and two fatal disasters involving it.Boeing has resisted sharing documents sought by lawyers representing families of victims of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX crash on March 10, which killed 157 people five months after a similar Lion Air disaster in which 189 people died. The lawyers, who are asking why the MAX continued flying after the first crash, say the materials are critical for assessing liability by Boeing and punitive damages. last_img read more

first_imgBy Ryan ClarkPHOENIX, Ariz. – One IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified driver is not only turning heads on the track, but off the track as well.Ryan Roath, the national point leader in the division through mid-May, was also the top vote-getter in the month’s Sybesma Graphics IMCA Facebook Fan Favorite contest.Roath is currently at the top of the standings at Prescott Valley Raceway, sits third at Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria and finished fourth in the Winter Challenge Series.“That’s where we want to be,” stated the Phoenix driver, recipient of a mini-mod door courtesy of Sybesma. “We’re trying to win a track championship this season and the Arizona State championship as well.”While Roath has won a track title in a local stock car division, he is seeking his first in a Modified.“We’ve never really run strong since we won Western Region Rookie of the Year in 2006,” he admitted. “We hope to change that this year.”Being from the West Coast, Roath realizes he’s already put much of his season behind him compared to other drivers across the country.“We have about 50 races scheduled this year,” Roath said of his team, “and we’ve already hit 26 of them.”“Our season started on Jan. 4 and I know the guys in the Midwest start later,” he continued. “We can’t race four nights a week like them so we’ll see what happens when the points shake out.”He had some ups and downs along the way throughout the first half of his season.“We blew up a crate motor and totaled our car in Vegas in March,” Roath recalled. “We were pretty fortunate to get it fixed. Klein Engines in Phoenix, Friesen Chevrolet and Rod Wadel with Jax Sports Grille made it possible and I’m very grateful to them.”Roath also credits the support of a number of crewmembers for his early season success. They include his dad Calvin, sheet metal guy Larry, crew chief John, PR man Rowdy, along with Dennis, Crystal, and Erin, son Chase and girlfriend Heather.His sponsors include Wahl Traction and Roadkill Grill of Las Vegas; Distinctive Custom Cabinetry, Arizona Biker Leathers, Big D’s RCs, Extreme Apparel, Advocare and Three Wide Photography, Dirt Pro Inc., all of Phoenix; Lucky 7 Designs of Sacramento Calif.; Goofy Tools of Mesa and JAX Sports Grille of Garden City, Kan., and Ed Sabin Photography of Prescott.last_img read more
