Bruce Jenner Files Motion to Try to Dismiss Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Him

Lawyers for Jenner say he should not have to compensate relatives of the woman killed.


Interesting legal maneuvering is going on in the Bruce Jenner wrongful death lawsuit.  Jenner was involved in a rear end collision in Malibu, California that resulted in the death of the driver of the vehicle he hit.  California laws of civil procedure allow a defendant being sued to file motions that allege that the facts stated in a complaint (or lawsuit) are not sufficient to state a legal cause of action.  The issue here is whether or not the plaintiff’s, who are stepchildren of the decedent, were “financially dependent” upon the decedent for essential expenses.
