Judge suspends 10-year sentence after fatal motorcycle crash

After a fatal auto accident, an at-fault driver might be subject to criminal charges. He or she could also face a wrongful death claim in civil court. While the criminal conviction of an at-fault driver can certainly bolster an injured party's civil claim in Montana, a conviction isn't necessary for a successful wrongful death lawsuit.

Update: Law proposed after Taser death

Last year, we covered the story of a mentally ill man who was killed when police officers shot him with a Taser device. Now the man's death has prompted legislators to take action to prevent similar tragedies in the future. The man who died was a Vermont resident, but Montana law enforcement officers also use stun guns, so the issues are relevant in our state as well.
