Three lawyers with extensive experience in airline crash lawsuits will lead nearly 100 cases brought following the Ethiopian Airlines crash earlier this year that led The Boeing Co. to ground its 737 Max 8 aircraft.

At a hearing on Tuesday, Judge Jorge Alonso of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois said he would grant a plaintiffs’ motion to appoint Bob Clifford of Chicago’s Clifford Law Offices as lead counsel, according to Clifford. He also said he would approve two other lawyers, Steven Marks of Podhurst Orseck and Justin Green of Kreindler & Kreindler, as co-leads of an executive committee.
