Ongoing Case Highlight: In re Air Crash over the S. Indian Ocean, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 71770 (Judicial Panel on MDL)


This case concerns the disappearance of Malaysian Airline MH 370 over the Indian Ocean. Defendants include Malaysia Airlines and Boeing. After assessing the various proposals for the appropriate venue for the consolidated multidistrict litigation, the judicial panel assigned the case to Judge Kentanji Brown Jackson of D.D.C. 


Hard to believe it has already been more than two years since the MH 370 disappeared! And the parties are just now deciding on the venue. This case provides one of the enduring lessons of American civil litigation: the process is slow and costly.
