The aircraft company Boeing is being sued for the death of the people who flew in the Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610, a Boeing 737 MAX 8 that killed 189 occupants on board on 29th October 2018.

The lawsuit was filed by the representatives of Rohmanir Pandi Sagala, one of the victims of the plane crash that occurred in October 2018.

This accident had signaled the fault in the models of the Boeing 737 MAX 8.

As per the data collected by TMZ, the Boeing 737 MAX 8 has a faulty MCAS (Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System) system, which serves to stabilize the plane.

However, the lawsuit filed on behalf of Rohmanir states the MCAS on Flight 610 titled the aircraft's nose into a dive without any effort from the pilot owing to a faulty sensor.

The suit further mentions that the pilots of the plane tried hard to pull back the nose of the plane, which caused it to seesaw for 2 times before crashing into the Java Sea.

The federal lawsuit says the Boeing failed to warn the general public and the pilots about the 737 MAX 8's "dangerous and defective design".

The suit further lengthens into the fatal crash suffered by the Ethiopian Airlines on March 10, 2019.

The fatal crash resulted in the death of 157 people, which led to the immediate grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 around the world.

As of now, the investigators have blamed the pilot for overreacting to the nose tilting scenario.
