Asiana may try to avoid suits in U.S.

Airline may save millions under law that could ban Chinese and Koreans from suing in U.S.

When tragedy strikes and a company may be at fault, millions of dollars are often awarded to those harmed—especially in the U.S. And that’s exactly what Asiana Airlines Inc. is likely worried about after one of its Boeing 777s crash landed in San Francisco on Saturday night, killing two and injuring dozens more.   

But the airline may be spared from shelling out those millions upon millions of dollars if it employs an international law that would bar Chinese and South Korean passengers from suing in the U.S., where courts are known to be friendly to victims.
