Court rules in favor of Porsche over Paul Walker’s car crash – A court has ruled in favor of carmakers Porsche in a suit over the death of Roger Rodas and actor Paul Walker.
Rodas and Walker were in a Porsche which hit a tree and caught fire in November 2013, killing both occupants. The suit was filed by Rodas’ wife, Kristine Rodas, but the judge ruled that she couldn’t prove that Porsche was responsible for the accident.
U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez in his ruling on Monday said Rodas didn’t have enough evidence to validate claims that the Porsche Carrera GT which Walker and Rodas were in lacked several key safety features. He also threw out her claims that the car’s suspension failed.
Kristine Rodas’ attorney, Mark Geragos, has said they plan to appeal the judgement.
