A Nigerian man named David Chukwunonso Allison has filed a lawsuit against the plane’s pilot Peter Waxtan (of Florida), manufacturer of the Dana Air plane (Boeing) and the plane’s engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. and United Technologies Corp.  Allison’s lawsuit claims that the plane and its engines were defective and “unreasonably dangerous,” leading to the death of his wife of two years, Joy Allison.

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.  Nine Americans were among those killed when the plane (with 153 passengers on board) hit a two story residential building in Lagos.
