PROVIDENCE â Six days after the sentencing of 27-year-old Laura Reale for a driving charge stemming from the death of Colin Foote, his father â Richard âRobinâ Foote â has filed a four-party lawsuit against those âwho are responsibleâ for the fatal crash.
The suit was filed by Foote in Superior Court Dec. 23 and it names the following as defendants: Reale; her father Thomas Reale, who was the owner of her Jetta that was involved in the fatal crash in May 2010; the state of Rhode Island; and the state Division of Motor Vehicles' (DMV) Director Sara Strachan.
No specific monetary amount is listed in the five-page lawsuit, though it states that the funds sought will cover lawyer fees. It further claims that it is âtime for those who are responsible to pay up.â It also calls for a jury trail.View more articles in:
