  • Family planning on Suing Matt Bush,Guyer and the Rays and the bar.....

    I think suing Guyer and the rays is a little overboard. What about everyone else?

    Josh Hancock's family tried to do something like this. They tried to sue the restaurant that served him, the tow truck company whose vehicle he crashed into, and the Cardinals.

    The family is upset, rightfully angry, and are now facing huge medical bills. Bush apparently doesn't have the money, so they're trying to take it out on anyone they can. I can see the logic in suing Guyer because it was his vehicle, but I doubt it will get anywhere due to the fact that Bush had been completely sober for some time and it appears that no one could see this coming. Its not like Guyer handed him the keys while he was drunk.

    As horrible as this is for the family to go through, the only one really responsible for what happened, legally and morally, is Bush. I would guess that Guyer, the Rays, and the bar would be tossed out as defendants, and then the family drops the lawsuit because there's really no point in going after the one person who has nothing to pay them back.

      I just think going after the Rays is just a money grab tactic.

        I doubt it. Not in the sense you seem to be using the word.

        They're lashing out in grief and anger, nothing more or less.

          Considering we already have another thread about this incident, should this thread be merged with it? It seems like it's just a continuation of the discussion there.

              Well, booze.
              "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”
