Boeing’s ‘Convicted Felon’ Status May Affect Overseas Contracts, Less Likely to Affect Those Within US: Legal Analyst

Plane-maker Boeing is set to plead guilty to a criminal fraud charge in connection with two deadly plane crashes. The plea deal would resolve a Justice Department investigation, though it still needs approval by a judge. The case involves two Boeing 737 MAX crashes that killed 346 people in Ethiopia and Indonesia.

NTD speaks to William Trachman, the general counsel at Mountain States Legal Foundation, who says the fact that Boeing is now officially a convicted felon may impact its ability to secure contracts with countries abroad. However, he said he believes that Boeing’s status will not impact its prospects for future contracts with the U.S. federal government.
