Boeing shareholders who purchased or acquired Boeing stock (NYSE ticker: BA) between January 1, 2019 and May 10, 2019, and are interested in learning about their potential rights to recover in a securities class action lawsuit pending against Boeing, please email the Thornton Law Firm at, or call 617-531-3933

Thornton Law Firm LLP is investigating a securities class action on behalf of shareholders and investors who purchased the securities of The Boeing Company (NYSE ticker: BA). The investigation involves possible violations of the federal securities laws by Boeing.

According to the lawsuit, Boeing prioritized profitability ahead of airplane safety. Boeing may have misled investors about the sustainability of Boeing’s core Commercial Airplanes segment by maintaining that the Boeing 737 MAX was a safe airplane. Boeing made these statements all while concealing the full extent of safety problems caused by the placement of larger engines on the 737 MAX that changed the handling characteristics of the 737 MAX from previous models. These handling characteristics included the danger of the increased pitch-up tendencies. These changes required special safety features, some of which Boeing installed only as “extras” or “optional features.”

As a result of Boeing’s alleged misconduct, as the news about Boeing’s alleged misconduct was revealed, Boeing’s (BA) stock plunged nearly $70 per share, from approximately $440 a share to $372 a share, the complaint alleges.
