CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — The family of a prominent entertainment attorney who was struck and killed by a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy's patrol car while riding his bicycle in December has filed a claim for damages.
The Daily News reported Tuesday that the claim, which is a precursor to a lawsuit, names the county, the Sheriff's Department and the deputy. It seeks unspecified damages.
The claim was filed by the family of Milton Everett Olin Jr., who was traveling in a bicycle lane in Calabasas when he was struck.
The family argues that Deputy Andrew Wood operated his vehicle negligently and carelessly.
The 65-year-old Olin practiced Internet, intellectual property and entertainment law and was former chief operating officer of the online file-sharing service Napster.
