In May 2014, the widow of Roger Rodas — the man who was driving Paul Walker at the time of his death — sued Porsche, claiming the carmaker was responsible for killing her husband on Nov. 30, 2013.
And now, the ‘Daily Mail’ has obtained Porsche’s response to the lawsuit, which the German car manufacturer allegedly demands to be thrown out as they believe Roger’s driving was responsible for the deadly crash.

“Roger Rodas’ death, and all other injuries and damages claimed, were the result of Roger Rodas’ own comparative fault,” Porsche claims, adding that by getting behind the wheel he voluntarily assumed all risks associated with operating the vehicle and, “He choose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to the dangers while operating the vehicle.”

The luxury car manufacturer also states that Roger — who, like Paul, was a racing hobbyist — altered the vehicle and made dangerous alterations that may have contributed to the crash.
Additionally, they accused Roger of not properly maintaining the vehicle.

And the court battles don’t end there.
Paul’s father, Paul Walker III, recently took legal action against the family of Roger Rodas — who was not only the late actor’s confidante, but also his business partner — regarding their shared car collection, estimated to be worth $2 million.
