Judge Rules Vehicular Manslaughter Case Can Continue
The vehicular homicide case against Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art Director Joe Thompson will continue following a judge's ruling.
Judge Paul Vrabel has denied a motion to dismiss the case against Thompson filed by his attorney, Timothy Shugrue. Oral arguments on the motion were heard on Jan. 31 in Northern Berkshire District Court.
Shugrue argued there was not enough probable cause to warrant the charges against Thompson in connection with the July, 20, 2018, crash in which motorcyclist Steven Fortier was killed.
The Berkshire Eagle has the details.
