Husband of Akron Plane Crash Victim Files Lawsuit Against Plane’s Owner

courtroomThe husband of Diana Suriel, one of the seven passengers killed in a plane crash last year, has filed a lawsuit against the plane’s owner in a Florida court.

The Hawker 125-700 plane went down on November 10th while it was attempting to land at Akron Fulton International Airport in Summit County, Ohio. There were nine people aboard at the time, including the pilot, the co-pilot, and seven passengers; all of them were killed in the crash.

The lawsuit filed by Diana’s husband Joel Castillo said that Rais Group International, that owned the plane, as well as ExecuFlight Inc., that leased it from the owner, allowed the pilots to fly the plane with defective equipment. It further alleges that the pilots did not have proper licenses and operated the aircraft at a dangerously low altitude that made the landing difficult.

On October 9 last year, Brent Randall was heading to class in the afternoon when he was shot to death outside his dorm room in Courtyard Apartments.

The family alleges that the university failed to provide sufficient security to the students on campus. According to the lawsuit, another student was shot outside the same apartment complex less than 12 hours before Randall was shot and therefore, the university “knew or reasonably should have known of the dangerous condition of the premises.”

Paul Walker’s Daughter Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Porsche

Paul Walker’s 16-year-old daughter Meadow is suing Porsche for her father’s death.

The Fast & Furious actor was killed after the Porsche Carrera GT he was travelling in crashed. Authorities said the accident happened due to speeding between 80 to 93 MPH.

According to the lawsuit, Roger Rodas was driving between 63 and 71 MPH and the vehicle had “a history of instability and control issues.” Meadow’s lawyers said in a statement, “The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas.”
