Attorneys representing Prestige Limo operator Nauman Hussain have filed a response in a civil lawsuit regarding the deadly Schoharie limousine crash.
The suit was filed by the family of Amanda Rivenburg, who, along with 19 others, died in the crash last October.
Hussain's attorneys deny many of the family's claims and offer up several other reasons on how her death could have been caused. First, that this was an Act of God for which Hussain isn't responsible. Attorneys also claim those in the limo knew the risks involved, and voluntarily assumed them. Defense attorneys also claim those in the limo weren't wearing seat belts.
An attorney with the law firm representing the Rivenburg family said this was a very "boilerplate" response.
