FORT WORTH, Texas/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co pleaded not guilty on Thursday to a 737 MAX fraud conspiracy charge felony charge after families objected to a 2021 Justice Department agreement to resolve the investigation into the plane's flawed design.

Boeing’s chief safety officer, Mike Delaney, entered the not-guilty plea on behalf of the planemaker. A not-guilty plea is standard in deferred prosecution agreements.

U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor last week ordered Boeing to appear to be arraigned after he ruled that people killed in the two Boeing 737 MAX crashes are legally considered "crime victims."
