Donald Martin, a worker at a paper plant, was killed by a machine while on the job. His widow, Nina Martin, attempted to sue the company that installed the machine, but that company no longer existed. Martin had difficulty determining which company was responsible for the installation company’s liability because of its complicated merger and acquisition history.

Because of that complicated history, Martin sued the incorrect company and did not realize who the responsible party was until after the statute of limitations expired. The issue this case presented for the Washington Supreme Court’s review centered on whether Martin met the requirements of the rule that allowed plaintiffs to add the correct defendant after the statute of limitations period expired, and whether her inability to identify the correct defendant was due to inexcusable neglect.

The Court found that it was not: the record did not show that the proper defendant’s identity was easily ascertainable by Martin during the limitations period. Accordingly, the Court reversed the Court of Appeals.

A driver for Uber Technologies Inc. whose car hit and killed a six-year-old girl crossing a San Francisco street last January was charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter, according to a spokesman for the city’s district attorney.

The arrest of the driver on Dec. 8, 2014, following a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the girl’s family, could be another setback for the company as it strives to convince regulators that it is safe. The app-based transportation service has received criticism in some cities for using drivers who don’t have taxi or limousine licenses.

Portland, Oregon recently cited licensing violations in a lawsuit seeking to block Uber from operating there just three days after it started. Officials in Rio de Janeiro similarly accused the car service of operating illegally in that city, while the Dehli state government shut down Uber in the Indian capital after one of its drivers was accused of rape.

A man is suing Wal-Mart Stores, claiming he was wrongfully accused of theft and unlawfully detained for two hours.

Alexander Ulteanu filed a lawsuit Oct. 21 in Cook County Circuit Court against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., and three employees.

At a barbecue hosted by Daniel Hylton, eight-year-old Tabitha Lasley was injured when she was thrown to the ground from an ATV she had been operating. Tabitha’s father, Gene Mosley, was supervising her during the incident.

Tabitha and her mother, Juanita Lasley filed a complaint alleging that Hylton had been grossly negligent by allowing and assisting Tabitha to operate the ATV.

The circuit court judged in Hylton’s favor, concluding that Hylton had no duty to Tabitha that could support a finding of negligence. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) if a child’s parent is present and supervising and knows of risks associated with an activity, a host does not breach the duty of reasonable care when he allows the child to participate in an activity with the parent’s permission; and (2) Hylton satisfied his duty of reasonable care to Tabitha when he ensured that Tabitha was being supervised by Moseley and had his permission to ride the ATV.

Earlier this week, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Walmart submitted its defense in New Jersey federal court to actor Tracy Morgan’s lawsuit arising from a six-car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Among nine defenses, Walmart says that injuries “were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device.” Morgan is one of several people injured who are suing Walmart for negligence.

Their lawsuit, filed in July 2014, questions whether Walmart driver Kevin Roper was fatigued at the time of the crash. According to the suit, Roper had driven 700 miles from his home in Georgia to a Walmart facility in Smyrna, Delaware, before starting his shift.
