Lidle’s Estate Sued

cory%20lidle%20plane%20crash.jpgIn an interesting development, 1010wins recently reported that one Upper East Side resident is suing the estate of late Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle. (Authors Note: This is actually the third lawsuit filed against the Lidle estate) As Dana reported when it happened, Lidle’s small plane crashed into a residential building on East 72nd on York after the pilot apparently becoming disoriented, cutting his own life short as well as that of his instructor, Tyler Stanger. There is no official finding as to who was actually in control of the plane at the time of the crash.

This is very interesting. Surely, an argument can be made that this is punitive, as insurance should have figuratively covered any expenses relating to repair damage of materials, and that people may or may not be trying to profit on tragedy. I personally feel that the people in the apartment whose lives were effected by the incident, tragic as it may have been, deserve restitution if they can in fact prove their suffering. After all, it was not their mistake for living in a building that was hit by a plane.

What do you think? Is this man being fair or overly litigious for suing the estate of Cory Lidle?
