“Minivan-drownings suit could cost taxpayers plenty”

by Walter Olson on August 31, 2011

Following the horrific murder-suicide of a woman who intentionally drowned herself and three of her four children, the woman’s estranged boyfriend is suing the city of Newburgh, N.Y. and its surrounding county for failing to prevent the crime. Joint and several liability reform would help, if only Albany were more sympathetic to the cause. [Thomas Stebbins, Poughkeepsie Journal; Daily News]

Think electric locks and side doors after the battery has shorted out. Add in automatic locks and the safety features so that children can’t open their doors from the inside.
