Yes, I murdered him -- and now I'm gonna sue him

To say that this story at the AMA webiste angered me would be an understatement. This is one of the most outrageous things I've read in quite a while:

"The driver of a Jeep who made a U-turn into the path of a motorcyclist, killing him, is considering suing the estate of the motorcyclist he killed [emphasis mine], according to a newspaper report.

The News-Times in Danbury, Connecticut, quoted lawyer Philip Russell as saying he believes his client, Andrew Guazza, 31, of Beacon, New York, has a 'valid claim' against the estate of the motorcyclist, Larry Pierce, 58, of New Fairfield, Pennsylvania.

On June 8, Guazza pleaded no contest to negligent homicide in Pierce's death, which occurred in 2003 when Guazza made a U-turn in front of Pierce, causing the fatal crash. Pierce was airlifted to a hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

Guazza suffered injuries in the crash, primarily to his ankle.

Russell said the suit could be based on an allegation that the motorcyclist 'came along unexpectedly at a speed substantially in excess of the posted speed,' the News-Times reported."

Holy cow.

Until such time as Mr. Guazza agrees not to sue Mr. Pierce's estate, I urge anyone in the Beacon, New York area who knows this piece of filth to boycott everything from the company he works for to the restaurants he frequents. Send the message and spread the word. When we allow convicted murderers to further violate their victims' families through the civil court system, the fabric of society receives another rip.
