In the wake of the death of her daughter, an elderly woman’s husband sued her friends and relatives for failing to pay him for the car accident he suffered.
The suit, filed in federal court in Houston on Monday, alleges that the family members, as well as her husband, “failed to provide adequate and timely assistance and accommodation” and that “they failed to pay damages for damages and damages caused by the accident.”
The suit also alleges that her husband was in danger of being “flee[ing] the United States in an aircraft in the event of an emergency and that she was in no position to prevent him from leaving the United Kingdom for safety reasons.”
According to the suit, the family had been living in Texas for decades.
The lawsuit seeks compensatory and punitive damages, attorneys’ fees and costs, and “any and all other damages.”
The attorney representing the family told Newsweek that the lawsuit was filed “to clear his wife’s name and help him heal.”
“It is my understanding that she has been a resident of Texas for 20 years, so I do not think this is an issue related to the Texas residency requirement,” the attorney said.
“I do believe it’s a matter of money.
I have never heard of any lawsuit that has been filed against her in this way before.”
The woman’s family attorney, Roberta Tulloch, told Newsweek she plans to represent the woman’s ex-husband in the suit.
Tulloch told Newsweek the woman had been seeking justice for her daughter’s death for years.
“She had been looking for justice for years, and for this case to be resolved is something she was desperate for,” Tullch said.
“This lawsuit has no impact on our relationship with her husband.
I think it’s going to make a huge difference to him, because I think he has been dealing with this for a long time.
I’ve never heard anyone go to a court of law in this type of situation, where a judge is saying ‘yes, you have a right to sue me,'” she said.
According to Tulluch, the woman, who is now 65, died on August 3, 2017, in the crash.
Her death is one of the most recent in Texas related to car accidents.
Tulluch said she has represented a number of people with wrongful death lawsuits in the past.
“This is the first lawsuit that I have ever filed in the U.S. about the death in a car accident,” she said, adding that she is familiar with a number more that are pending.
Tolch said the family has already received a notice from the U,S.
District Court for the Northern District of Texas in the case.
The filing of the lawsuit does not affect the case’s motion to dismiss, which will be heard on December 13.
According to a statement from Tullich, the suit alleges that “the family of Ms. Bostich had been in Texas since her husband’s death in 1997, and had lived there continuously since that time.”
According the suit’s court filing, the Bostics “had resided in Texas and had resided in Austin, Texas, since December 17, 2019.”
