In Chicago, WE SUE! Cook County Judge Throws Out Malaysia Plane Suit

A Cook County judge has thrown out the first court action filed in connection with the missing Malaysia Airlines passenger jet, called the filing improper and threatening to impose sanctions against a Chicago-based law firm that has been accused of questionable tactics in the wake of aviation disasters.

Without solid evidence of a crash or wreckage of the jet, Ribbeck Law Chartered said in a petition filed last week that the Beijing-bound Flight 370 had experienced a catastrophic mechanical failure before plunging into the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 passengers and crew on board

Critics called the court filing a publicity stunt -- a series of accusations thrown together in order to win the battle for legal business after an air disaster.

Ribbeck's principal attorney, Monica Kelly told reporters in Asia last week that her firm eventually expected to represent families of more than half of those on board the jet that disappeared March 8 over the south Indian Ocean.
