A lawyer says the family of a French flight attendant who perished in an Air France plane crash on June 1 over the Atlantic Ocean is suing the airline to force it to release information on what caused the tragedy.
The Airbus jet went down while flying from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. All 228 people aboard were killed.
The lawyer for Clara Amado's family says they have filed a civil suit against the airline. Jean-Claude Guidicelli says the family wants the company to disclose information on whether the plane's speed sensors were to blame for the crash.
Investigators believe the speed monitors could have contributed to the accident, and airlines around the world have been ordered to replace them.
Air France declined to comment.
