Lawsuit Transpires Out of August Plane Crash

MARCH 12, 2006 -- The family of a woman killed in a plane crash last August is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the pilot's estate.

Cathy Hathaway, a Wilmington woman, was killed when the plane she was in went down near Figure Eight Island. The pilot of that plane, Bracey Bobbit, was also killed in that crash.

Now, the Star News is reporting Hathaway's family is suing Bobbit's estate for $10,000 in damages.

The family believes Bobbitt's estate should be held responsible for Hathaway's death.
