In this Friday Short Haul Prime escapes a potentially nuclear verdict, Teamsters applaud legislation that might undo recent HOS changes, and OOIDA opposes efforts to give brokers exemption from posting a $75,000 bond.

The driver of the original vehicle, Caruso, died during the course of the litigation, but if Holownia continues to appeal, this time to the New York Court of Appeals, he intends to name as having vicarious liability Caruso's brother, Vincent Caruso, who owned the car Brian Caruso was driving.

I do feel sorry for Holownia, but he's alive, probably had insurance to cover his injuries and damaged vehicle....but this is reaching too far. He needs to accept the verdicts and get on with his life.

These get nuttier all the time. Expect the ambulance chasers to go after the driver, the carrier, the truck manufacturer, the tire manufacturer, the brakes manufacturer, etc.

These crazy verdicts never end. Tort Reform Now I say!
