An Irish company that buys and leases airplanes sued Boeing Co. in the U.S. to void contracts for almost two dozen 737 Max aircraft and to demand at least US$185 million in damages, citing design flaws that led to two deadly crashes.

Timaero Ireland Ltd., based in Dublin, sued Boeing on Tuesday in federal court in Chicago, alleging fraud and breach of contract in deals it signed starting in 2014 for 22 of the jets. The company said it relied on Boeing’s assurances that the planes were safe and would be delivered on time.
