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.
