Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370) was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on March 8, 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia, to Beijing Capital International Airport in China.

Family members of 88 passengers who sued in U.S. courts over the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in 2014 will have to refile cases in Malaysia courts after a federal judge dismissed all 40 lawsuits.

In “one of the greatest aviation mysteries of modern times,” U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson in Washington, D.C., found that “the claims asserted in the consolidated complaints have a substantial and overriding nexus to Malaysia that outweighs the less substantial connection to the United States.”
