Paul Walker – Roger Rodas
[KHTS] – The family of Paul Walker is suing the estate of Roger Rodas for almost $2 million, according to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Judge David Cunningham set a hearing date for Jan. 27, according to court records.
The father of “Fast and the Furious” movie star Paul Walker is seeking $1.8 million from Kristine Rodas for holding automobiles reportedly belonging to the father’s late son, according to an International Business Times story.
The court papers in the lawsuit seek the money as compensation for “numerous automobiles and other motor vehicles that are either wholly or partially owned” by Walker, and in Rodas’ possession, according to an Entertainment Weekly report.
The family has rejected the claim, according to court filings. The matter is currently under probate.
The lawsuit was apparently in response to claims that cars owned by Walker, which are thought to include a number of valuable BMWs, Audis, Porches and several Ford Mustangs, were being sold through private brokers.
Paul Walker and Roger Rodas were business partners in a high performance car company called Always Evolving.
The two were killed in a fiery crash in a Porsche driven by Rodas, according to Sheriff’s Department officials.
Fans recently held a small memorial at the Santa Clarita crash site on the one-year anniversary of their deaths.
