Universal Hub is reporting that the family of Robinson Lalin, who died after his arm became stuck in a Red Line train when it departed Broadway Station back in April, has filed a lawsuit against the MBTA.
According to documents filed at Suffolk Superior Court, the family charges that while the train’s driver failed to look out his window before pulling out of the station, the MBTA also is to blame due to the fact the train had a faulty door system that should have stopped the train from moving while obstructed.
The family would like to see a jury trial and is seeking damages.
