Bruce Jenner has just responded to Kim Howe’s stepchildren William and Dana’s wrongful death lawsuit against him, asking that the case be dismissed since it has no merits. As Gossip Cop reported, Howe was killed in a car crash back in February on the Pacific Coast Highway after Jenner’s Escalade smashed into the back of her Lexus, causing her car to veer into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by a Hummer. Howe was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly after the deadly car crash, Howe’s adult stepchildren filed a lawsuit against Jenner for wrongful death, claiming the former Olympian was “careless and negligent.” Around the time that the stepchildren had filed their suit, it was also revealed that neither William nor Dana had ever developed a close relationship with Howe or depended on her financially.

In his court filing, Jenner said the stepchildren’s wrongful death lawsuit has no merits since they didn’t have a connection with their stepmother before her passing. While he acknowledged that the car crash was “a terrible tragedy,” Jenner is seeking for the case to be tossed out. As Gossip Cop previously noted, Jenner was not using his cell phone nor was he under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the crash.
