On Saturday, June 22nd, 2019, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. the American Museum of Tort Law will host an event and reception remembering those who lost their lives in the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 on March 10, 2019. The crash of this airplane, the Boeing 737 MAX 8, manufactured by Boeing, took the lives of 157 people, including Samya Rose Stumo, grandniece of Museum Founder Ralph Nader.
The lives of these victims will be celebrated and mourned at a program from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at the American Museum of Tort Law, 654 Main St., Winsted, CT. the speakers will include the parents of Samya, Nadia Milleron and Michael Stumo, who will discuss her work in global healthcare and their efforts to bring accountability to Boeing and the FAA for safer airline travel; Ralph Nader; and William J. McGee, noted airline consumer safety advocate, and author of “Attention All Passengers.” The program will be open to the public and the press, and will also be videotaped.
This program will address the causes of the two horrific disasters in Indonesia and Ethiopia, both involving Boeing’s 737 MAX 8, followed by a declaration presenting the ways that Boeing and its culpable executives must be brought to justice under both the criminal and tort laws of our land. Ways to reform the FAA by Congress so as to restore its role of a regulator, instead of a cozy delegator of its life-saving duties, will be addressed. Senator Richard Blumenthal has been invited to describe the proposed legislation to strengthen and return regulatory authority to the FAA.
