    ...he was partly responsible for paul walkers death by driving recklessly. why is it wrong to sue his estate since hes dead too and is not going to miss the money.

    Come on now. It's common knowledge that Rodas forced Walker into that car at gun point. :rolleyes:

    I don't know who I hate more, the scumbag lawyers that bring these frivolous suits, or the feckless judges who refuse to throw them out on their ear.

    The suit filed by the wife of the driver was just dismissed:

    The fiery crash that killed Paul Walker and good friend Roger Rodas was not the fault of Porsche ... so says a judge who threw out a wrongful death/product liability lawsuit filed by Rodas' widow.

    The judge ruled it was nothing but speculation that alleged design defects in the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT caused the November 2013 crash.

    Yeah, at least, I would think. He was only 40 when he died.

    It is a sad story--he seemed like a decent guy and did a lot for charity.

    ...so can we call the daughters upcoming suit the second bite of the apple? lawyers will go over the mothers case, adjust, and roll the dice again. the car was not your every day daily driver. it was build more on the lines of a street legal race car. really touchy on the gas and suspension. i heard porsche gives lessons on how to drive it to people who but it because its a very serious car.

    Agreed although unless they come up with a new theory, I would surmise they are dead in the water also. The widow's expert could not come up with a single compelling flaw with the vehicle.

    I read all the same things about that car. Both guys were huge car enthusiasts, but WTF was he/they thinking to be driving that fast in that car in that area? Makes zero sense.
