Ribbeck Law said it has filed a petition for discovery in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois, requesting that Boeing produce documents related to design, manufacturing and maintenance records of the model 777 plane that crashed. The law firm said in a statement that there may have been a problem with the plane’s auto-throttle, along with evacuation chutes that improperly inflated inward and seat belts that aggravated passenger injuries.
