But even the state prosecutors felt the trial didn’t produce proof of criminal wrongdoing by the companies. They argued that both should be acquitted. They laid the blame primarily on the pilots, who died in the crash. As prosecutors spoke, dozens of people who lost loved ones in the crash stormed out of the Paris courtroom Thursday.
