DA went the easy way out.
Yeah he did but can't fault him for that, IMO. I wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole as Mr Mid Size County America DA.

Let the group of 12 angry men decide his fate and wash my hands off it. 'murica.

To normal people, life is priceless. In the eye of the courts, there's always a pricetag. And no, you won't ease any pain.

Like the situation itself, it's all very unfortunate.

Well..... this case just got thrown out.
Quote:
UPDATE4: A grand jury has decided Tony Stewart will not face charges for his role in the on-track death of sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. Prosecutors in upstate New York made the announcement Wednesday, just hours after the grand jury finished hearing testimony in the case. Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo also said Ward was under the influence of marijuana at the time of his death, according to toxicology reports. Tantillo looked at the evidence and could have brought charges or dropped the case himself, but said last week that the matter would be decided by the grand jury. Stewart could have been charged with second-degree manslaughter under New York law, experts said, if prosecutors believed he "recklessly caused the death of another person." Negligent homicide also was another possibility.(ESPN)
This is why such things as drug tests are necessary, even at short tracks like these.

Unfortunately it sounds like the Family will pursue this further

@JennaFryer

Statement from Ward family as read over phone by sister Kayla Herring:
"Our son got out of his car during caution when the race was suspended. All the other vehicles were reducing speed and not accelerating except for Stewart, who intentionally tried to intimidate Kevin by accelerating and sliding his car toward him, causing the tragedy. The focus should be on the actions of Mr. Stewart. This matter is not at rest and we will pursue all remedies in fairness to Kevin.”

As of today, there is no way to test if someone is currently under the influence of marijuana. So let's squash the DA's statement there...

I read somewhere else that there was enough to "impair" Ward, so the media is using different terms to write their stories, hoping they will sell, but to your point, the toxicology report can only prove it was in his system and nothing else.

I'd say much of their civil suit is probably in the trash can now.

I tend to agree. In its most empirical form Ward did something irrational with traces of marijuana in his system and sadly died as a result. It would be very difficult to convince even a civil court that anyone other than Ward was negligent. I feel for the family though, they were in a very bad place before this and their situation has gotten even worse now.

If the Ward family go ahead with a claim I wouldn't be surprised if Tony Stewart counter sues the estate of Kevin Ward for distress caused.

I assume there'll be background noise on this for awhile longer as snippets in the backpages before it disappears into the ether; perhaps with a minor settlement.

Pretty sure that's not Tony Stewarts style.
