The family of Johnny Lee Cutliff, who died along with his boss, Houston plaintiffs lawyer John M. O’Quinn in a one-vehicle accident on Oct. 29, has filed a wrongful death suit seeking $7 million from O’Quinn, his estate and Classy Classic Cars Ltd., which owns O’Quinn’s vast car collection.

James Cutliff of Houston filed the petition in November in Johnny Lee Cutliff’s probate case in Harris County, Texas, The Estate of Johnny Lee Cutliff. In James Cutliff, et al. v. John O’Quinn, et al., the Cutliff family alleges the wrongful death action is necessary because O’Quinn “caused the death of Johnny Lee as a result of O’Quinn’s grossly negligent driving of an automobile owned by the car company.”
