Bruce Jenner faces wrongful death lawsuit Bruce Jenner was driving his automobile and it crashed into Kim Howe’s Lexus and she died. Now he’s being sued for this. Not by her children. She has none. But by her step grandchildren, since they are the only people who have a legal right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. That’s California.Something doesn’t sit right with me about this lawsuit. It sounds like a money grab. Jenner is worth millions and I’m sure he doesn’t want to go to trial. So I think some step grandchildren are going to make out well. I feel bad for Howe. She lost her life. But accidents do happen.
