Judge Clears Texting Woman from Boyfriend's Lawsuit


A New Jersey Superior Court judge ruled today that a woman who sent a text message to her boyfriend while he was driving cannot be held liable for the motor vehicle accident he subsequently caused. The decision stemmed from a 2009 case in which Kyle Best, 19, was responding to a text message from his girlfriend, Shannon Colonna, 19, while he was driving his pickup truck when he crashed into a motorcycle and severely injured David and Linda Kubert.

Judge Eugene Hyman says "The trial judge only addressed the "duty" aspect and didn't address the causation issue."
