SEATTLE - (AP) - Boeing attorney William Kilberg told a judge in Seattle that the company intends to file a motion to dismiss the case as a hearing opened Tuesday.
The judge excused Boeing and the National Labor Relations Board's lawyers to continue private legal bargaining on motions and appeals. Court re-convenes Wednesday. The judge has not ruled on Boeing's request for summary dismissal of case.
The NLRB accuses Boeing of illegally retaliating against union workers for past strikes by adding a non-union assembly line for its new 787 passenger jet in North Charleston.
