Alaska Air Probe Expanded

Government lawyers instead will monitor a separate crash probe by the National Transportation Safety Board, which has yet to determine the cause. Federal prosecutors have decided not to file charges against Alaska Airlines after a three year grand jury probe into reported irregularities at an Oakland maintenance center.

The investigation had been expanded to include the crash of Flight 261 off the California coast on January 31, 2000. All 88 people aboard were killed.
