Midland - The military veterans and spouses injured in the Show of Support parade train crash last year dismissed their civil lawsuit against Union Pacific and Smith Industries in Midland County.
The plaintiff’s attorney says the move will allow the Midland and Dallas civil lawsuits to consolidate. The attorney told the Midland Reporter Telegram that dismissing and refiling in Dallas County was the only way that the cases could be tried together.
He added that the attorneys representing the plaintiffs in the Dallas lawsuit preferred to keep the case in Dallas.
