lawsuit news: A judge has tossed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche, the Carrera GT was alleged to have faulty suspension

Kristine Rodas had alleged in her May 2014 lawsuit against Porsche that her husband lost control of the car due to shoddy suspension and side impact protection, and that the vehicle had exploded on impact because it lacked a proper crash cage and fuel cell.

U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez ruled in papers : "Plaintiff has provided no competent evidence that Rodas’ death occurred as a result of any wrongdoing"

The judge also pointed out the force that killed Rodas was from front impact with the utility pole, not side impact.

If you aren't aware of this Rodas vs Porsche case, it was the stupid showing off behavior in a 20015 Porsche Carrera GT that killed Paul Walker, and the driver, his friend Roger Rodas who was driving.

The crash occurred Nov. 30, 2013, when Rodas lost control of the vehicle, crashing it into trees and a utility pole.
