In a stunning turn of events for the Los Santos legal district today, a lawsuit has been successfully filed for the first time since 1996. Three days ago, Edward Pine was making deliveries to a popular nightclub in the West Vinewood area. As he was making his rounds, he alleges that his delivery truck, a silver Bravado Rumpo, was sideswiped by a purple Benefactor
Glendale. The owner of the Glendale, Mary Porter, alleges that she was exiting a nearby parking lot when Mr. Pine carelessly pulled away from the nightclub and sideswiped her. Police provided us with this photo taken after the fact.
The lawsuit, filed by Mr. Pine, is the first civil suit to actually make it to trial since 1996’s “Weller v. Powers.” Since then, Los Santos courtrooms have largely been filled with frivolous lawsuits that have always been thrown out before trial. The news comes as a sad shock to the legal world. Judiciary staff have called "Pine v. Porter" a "case worth reviewing." Mr. Pine is adamant that he is right and will see the lawsuit through to the finish. Ms. Porter, in fighting spirit, stays true to her timeline of events and even provided this quote:
I’m not going to stand here and let this happen. If I did that, then anything would do in this damn city! I’ll have my day in court and you’ll see I’m not at fault.
Litigation is currently pending. We will update this story as soon as we get a verdict.
