Caitlyn Jenner is on the road to recovery as far as her legal entanglements are concerned.
The Olympian-turned-reality TV star has settled a lawsuit stemming from a deadly car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway that Jenner was involved in last year.
Papers have been filed to dismiss a lawsuit filed against her by the adult stepchildren of Kimberly Howe, who perished in the multi-car accident.
Jenner was hit with a wrongful-death suit by Dana Redmond and William Howe, who contended that her vehicle hit the senior Howe’s car, pushing it into oncoming traffic. According to the suit, her death “caused plaintiffs to suffer enormous damages and losses.”
Jenner had fought back against the lawsuit, claiming in her own court filing that Redmond and Howe weren’t financially dependent on the victim and thus are not entitled to damages in Howe’s death.
Jenner is not facing criminal charges as a result of the accident. In December, she settled another lawsuit filed by Jessica Steindorff, the driver of a Prius who was also involved in the accident.
Also in December, Jenner was slapped with yet another lawsuit by a family that was driving in a Hummer involved in the accident. That suit accuses Jenner of being “inattentive and traveling at unsafe speed for traffic conditions,” causing a “high-force collision.”
