“Wrongful-Death Suit Filed Against Criminal Defendant’s Parents, Grandmother”

“While lawyer Scott Marshall has pleaded guilty to a murder charge, his victim’s mother has filed an unusual wrongful-death suit against not only him but his parents and his 92-year-old grandmother.” [Texas Lawyer]


  • Cowey alleges the defendants failed to warn “Montgomery of the unsafe condition of their son.

    This gives a whole new meaning to a defective product lawsuit. I guess they should have had a warming label tattooed on their son.

  • Walter, the murderer was a plaintiff’s lawyer. How could you leave that part out?

  • I guess it comes down to why someone would kill the ex-wife of the former law partner that is suing them. I suspect that their is some sort of crazy issue here with the parents and the grandparent all knowing that a murder was about to be committed and then failing to act to stop it or even warn someone about it.

    But…Oh Dear God, this guy was a mess!

  • But is is odd that the lawyer says that he is not at liberty to discuss the details of the case now. You are the plaintiff’s lawyer. You have filed a lawsuit. When do you think you will be ready to chat about it?
