The Supreme Court says Thursday it has reviewed court documents again and saw no reason to hear an appeal from the family of Shenandoah Clark. The family had sued Toyota alleging the truck was defective. Clark died in 2011.
A Hinds County jury in 2009 ruled for Toyota. The state Court of Appeals upheld the verdict in 2011.
Toyota, according to court documents, said Clark’s negligence caused the accident not any defect in the truck.
