“They were waiting for some development in the search for the plane but nothing has been forthcoming so far. Everyone is hoping for some answers through the court,” their lawyer Shailender Bhar said. Many other lawsuits are expected to be filled next week. The current search for the MH370 wreckage is expected to end by June or July. A Boeing 777 flaperon was found on an island in the western Indian Ocean in July and confirmed by the Malaysian and French governments to come from the ill-fated flight. Some possible debris were found on Reunion Island and after nothing more.
An international aviation agreement allows each next-of-kin of passengers on board a plane up to $175,000 in compensation, but a plaintiff filing a lawsuit can seek more.
