Family Members of Deadly Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 Victims Seeking One Billion Dollars in Damages From Boeing

Ribbeck Law Chartered, which represents the majority of families of the victims of the deadly Boeing 737 MAX 8 crashes, and Global Aviation Law Group, recently filed additional lawsuits against Boeing, in U.S. federal court in Chicago. This is the latest in a growing number of lawsuits filed against Boeing in the aftermath of two fatal crashes in less than five months.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed six minutes after taking off from Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, killing all 157 people on board, from more than two dozen countries. The flight impacted a farm field at nearly 700 miles per hour, which created a crater 90 feet wide and 120 feet long. The force of the crash caused wreckage to be driven into the soil up to 30 feet deep.

Manual von Ribbeck of Ribbeck Law Chartered stated, “The filings today are on behalf of the families of the victims of Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 specifically.” “It has been nearly 10 months since the deadly crash of Lion Air flight 610 and 5 months since the crash of Ethiopian Airlines 302, and it does not appear that Boeing is interested in any out of court settlement.” “The families we represent are seeking what they are entitled to under the law, nothing less, nothing more.” Mr von Ribbeck adds, “We had hoped that based on the over whelming evidence against Boeing that Boeing was going to be reasonable and finally give some closure to the families, but it is not the case. We basically had no other choice but to file more lawsuits.”

Currently, Ribbeck Law Chartered represents families of passengers from America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific Basin, and is litigating in American Courts representing victims from airplane incidents that occurred in North America, Asia, South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers

Oxygen Media, the destination for high-quality crime programming, dives head first into the unnerving and complex story of a small town shrouded in secrets in the six-part event series, “The Disappearance of Crystal Rogers,” beginning Saturday, August 11 at 7pm ET/PT with a two-hour premiere. This is the third installment of the hit “Disappearance of…” franchise, following the previous cases of Natalee Holloway and Maura Murray. What begins as an exploration into the mysterious circumstances surrounding Crystal Rogers, a mother of five vanishing from the tiny town of Bardstown, Kentucky, quickly spirals into the dissection of multiple unsolved homicides haunting this idyllic, heartland community. Presumed dead and the victim of foul play, it has been over two years and there have been no arrests made in Crystal’s case. Additionally, Crystal’s father, Tommy Ballard, who was conducting his own 16-month investigation into his daughter’s disappearance, was shot down and died, leaving a box of clues behind. This series will follow Emmy Award-nominated reporter Stephanie Bauer and veteran homicide detective Dwayne Stanton, who has worked on celebrity cases and more than 750 homicide investigations, as they relentlessly unearth new leads, insights and information. For a sneak peek, visit https://www.oxygen.com/the-disappearance-of-crystal-rogers/season-1/videos/the-disappearance-of-crystal-rogers-premieres.

Stephanie and Dwayne recruit several experts to help dig deep into the mysterious and potentially connected unsolved crimes in Bardstown. Together, they’ll draw on Dwayne’s many years of hard earned experience, Stephanie’s relentless quest for answers and the many clues that Tommy Ballard left behind when his investigation was suddenly and violently cut short. Additionally, they’ll need to tread carefully so as not to interfere with the open investigation being conducted by the Kentucky State Police. The authorities acknowledge that having so many unsolved crimes in such a small town is atypical; the question remains, what secrets lie just underneath in Bardstown?

OXYGEN’S SNAPPED x AILEEN WUORNOS

America’s first female serial killer, Aileen Wuornos, captivated the nation’s attention when she was found guilty for brutally murdering six men, and confessing to a seventh between November 1989 to November 1990. In the two-hour “Snapped: Notorious – Aileen Wuornos,” premiering Sunday, March 25th at 6pm ET/PT, Oxygen Media takes a closer look at the turbulent trial that was the first of its kind. Was Aileen Wournos afforded a just trial, or did the media frenzy cause unfair bias among the jury? For a sneak peek, please visit here.

Aileen Wuornos was a self-professed “highway prostitute” who rose to infamy when she was arrested for the deaths of several men in central Florida. Aileen ultimately confessed to the killings as self-defense, but the jury unanimously convicted her on six counts of first degree murder and sentenced her to death. The special will uncover everything from the complexities of the case to the biased media reports. Through new interviews with those closest to Aileen and her trial, the special will delve deeper into two vastly different perspectives – was she the cold-blooded killer the country made her out to be? Or was she an abuse victim that was forced to protect herself?
