Boeing will be arraigned on a criminal charge two crashes of Boeing 737 Max jets in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

Boeing representatives and relatives of some of the passengers killed in two crashes of Boeing 737 Max jets will meet face-to-face in a Texas courtroom Thursday, where the aerospace giant will be arraigned on a criminal charge that it thought it had settled two years ago.

There will be two main phases to the arraignment: Boeing will enter a plea, and then relatives of the passengers will ask the court to impose conditions on Boeing much as it would on any criminal defendant. Boeing was charged with a single count of defrauding the United States to get regulators to approve the Max jet. But the outgoing Trump administration's Justice Department agreed to defer prosecution and drop the charge if Boeing paid $2.5 billion - mostly to airlines, but including a $243.6 million fine - and commit no other crimes for three years.

The Biden administration's Justice Department did not oppose an arraignment, but it continues to agree with Boeing that the settlement should stand. In a court filing last November, the department said that without the settlement, the government would lose its ability to ensure that Boeing follows through with reforms designed to prevent future tragedies.
