    Seen a rumour on the interweb that this is a counter suit but could be false. Maybe Unglued can confirm this.

    Driver sues estate of Ontario teen Brandon Majewski, who was struck, killed | CTV News


    "In my 14 years of doing this, I've unfortunately represented far too many people who have lost children being hit by motorists, (and) I've never seen this," lawyer Brian Cameron told CTV News Channel. "I've never even heard of this … I was shocked when I got the claim."

    Driver of SUV that hit cyclists suing dead teen?s family

    Interesting


    They particularly believe that the boys were blamed for the accident that killed Brandon — that it was their fault because only two of the bikes had what the police called “minimal reflectors,” because they were riding abreast, because their clothing was dark, albeit with reflectors, because they weren’t wearing helmets.
    Now.. let the wringing of hands and the building of bonfires commence.

    Apparently the woman's Husband was a Cop, no influence on the investigation here? Very sad. Another case of no justice for the police!

    I'm gonna avoid comment on the optics of the motorist's lawsuit and LEO connection as that fruit is hanging a bit too low.

    But the claim that COLOR of the rider's clothing is more significant than the ADMITTED PRESENCE OF REFLECTIVE MATERIAL on said clothing is interesting.

    Combined with the complaints about the lack of street lights, the motorist appears to be taking the position that ambient light should have been enough to illuminate all objects in her path without the need for vehicle headlights.


    It's telling though that they although they know she was speeding, at the time of the fatality, no charges were laid, because she wasn't "speeding enough".

    Actually the article I read said she blew a 0.0 on the scene.

    So riding 3 wide, on an 80km/hr road, at 1am with no lights and no helmet? Of course very sad when any rider gets hit and killed but what the heck were they thinking?

    It makes me smile, in a sad for my Country kind of way, when you read that The Mr. Simons' employer did all of the investigating. I wonder why the OPP were not called in for this one???

    And the kids bikes had reflectors. When road conditions are poor aren't you supposed to slow down?

    I stand corrected. I wonder did they check to see if she was texting?

    That was a concern of the boy’s parents. I’m guessing they will check phone records for the time of the incident. If her husband was driving behind her it’s quite possible that they were talking on the phone while doing so.

    I read that the teen's parents are suing her, so maybe this countersuit is standard operating procedure for civil litigation? I dunno....

    I do recall a few years ago when the 5 Kanata cyclists were mowed down by a motorist who fled the scene, the cyclists sued and the motorist's lawyer immediately counter sued, alledging all sorts of stuff.
