Judge Rules Porsche Is Not To Blame For The Death Of Paul Walker
A judge has ruled that Porsche is not responsible for the crash that killed Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, in 2013.
Mr Rodas' widow, Kristine, filed a wrongful death lawsuit as she believed that the car lacked several important safety features. However, US District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez ruled that there was not enough evidence to support the claims that Porsche was responsible for the accident.
However, there are still two other lawsuits that have been filed. One by Walker's daughter, Meadow, and the other by his father, Paul Walker III.

Meadow's attorney, Jeff Milam, spoke to E! News about how this ruling will not effect the others: "The issues in the cases are very different. The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact.
"Meadow's father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle's defects."
