Whitmyer IP Group today filed suit against Boeing Company on behalf of its client Timaero Ireland Ltd. The suit alleges fraud and breach of contract by Boeing inducing customers to order and pay significant cash deposits on 737 MAX aircraft that Boeing knew were unsafe and would not operate in a manner consistent with prior 737 aircraft. Timaero paid cash deposits on twenty-two 737 MAX aircraft, and has taken delivery of only two. The lawsuit seeks return of more than $185MM in cash deposits for undelivered aircraft, lost profits, and punitive damages. A copy of the complaint as filed is available here.
