Bruce Jenner wears sunglasses to appear on Extra

Bruce Jenner is petitioning a judge to throw out a wrongful death suit filed by the adult step-children of the victim of the fatal car accident he was involved in this February. 

While it’s not entirely clear what ultimately caused the fatal car accident, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s SUV rear-ended a Lexus sedan driven by 69-year-old Kimberly Howe. Ms. Howe died at the scene as a result of injuries sustained from the accident, which Bruce described as a “devastating tragedy.” Five others were also injured, although Bruce was unharmed.

Shortly after the accident, from which Bruce was issued no police charges, Ms. Howe‘s stepchildren filed a wrongful death suit against him. Bruce, who is currently filming a reality show about his transition and gender reassignment, tells the court there is no grounds for this suit and is requesting that a judge to throw it out! 

People reports that Bruce’s attorney filed papers in response to the family’s claim, filed by step-children William Howe, 57, and Dana Redmond, 60, arguing “lack of standing” because the adult step-children are “not financially dependent upon the decedent for the necessities of life.”

Bruce’s attorney further attested that the step-children’s “family connection to the victim” does not legally allow them the right to sue for wrongful death.
