Widow of IRS employee sues wife of pilot who flew his plane into Austin IRS buildingThe widow of an Internal Revenue Service employee killed when a disgruntled taxpayer flew his plane into a seven-story building in Austin, Texas, last week is suing the pilot's wife, according to court documents. Valerie Hunter, the wife of Vernon Hunter, is accusing Sheryl Stack, wife of Andrew Joseph "Joe" Stack III, of negligence, alleging she she knew or should have known that her husband was a threat to others and, thus, could have prevented the attack, according to the lawsuit filed Monday in Travis County District Court.
"Stack was threatened enough by Joseph Stack that she took her daughter and stayed at a hotel the night before the plane crash. [She] owed a duty to exercise reasonable care to avoid a foreseeable risk of injury to others including [Vernon Hunter]," the suit says.

While I feel for her, this falls under the realm of ridiculous."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970

Has she (Hunter) even had time to bury her husband yet?
Sure didn't waste time with a lawsuit.
Probably counting the dollar signs even before the funeral.
Dayum, hope I never pizz her off.

Does this mean that everyone in America can sue Hunter because she should have known that they were going to speed and get a ticket? Did she have a reasonable duty to prevent that?
