Family of St. Joseph woman files wrongful death suit

The family of a St. Joseph woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit after the death of their family member in an accident. The lawsuit was filed against the Jamaica school district and an electric company.

According to the lawsuit, the school and electric company were both negligent and this caused the death of the woman. The school was hosting a football jamboree when a transformer pole fell and on the woman and killed her.

She was the cheerleading coach at the school and her son played freshmen football. Both of the wooden poles were at least 50 years old and the transformer was deteriorating. The lawsuit is seeking $50,000 in damages.

Judge dismisses wrongful death case in Illinois

A wrongful death case was recently thrown out due to the statute of limitations in the case. The case was filed by the parents of a 22-year-old that was found dead in her boyfriend’s home in 2005.

Her death was labeled a murder-suicide case by police officials, but her parents have filed a wrongful death suit against the estate of her boyfriend that shot her and the man who gave him a gun.

The family is claiming that the man who gave the gun to the boyfriend,negligently entrusted the weapon with a person that was suffering from depression. Neither of the defendants have been served since the suit was filed in 2007.
