Boeing's board of directors must face a lawsuit from shareholders over two fatal crashes involving its 737 Max plane, a US judge has ruled.

How about a year-long in-air testing of the plane, with Boeing's board required to be on each and every flight?

I took a 737max to Hawaii. I did not know in advance. Yes, I was nervous.

It will be interesting to see just how far this goes.

Everyone in management that ignored the warnings from the engineers should be held civilly and criminally responsible. This country all too often allows management to murder, maim and pollute in the name of profit and just lets them walk away while the corporation gets to file bankruptcy and have their debt washed away. A little skin in the game on the part of these people would go a long way to improving public safety. They face no consequences for their actions or inactions now.

I think it's time to rethink the wall of immunity that "shareholders" have from the actions of the corporation. Why is it a good thing? Investments would be riskier without that, but wouldn't they also produce larger rewards? Isn't that the whole risk-benefit-calculation thing? We The People grant them a charter to operate, shouldn't they have to operate in the interest of We The People in exchange for the privilige (no, incorporation is not a right) of a reasonable liability shield.

They have used their money to influence law-making in a way that makes them accountable for nothing.
