“A landmark decision affecting the trucking industry nationally was recently made in U.S. Federal Court, the Western District of New York.
For the first time, the Graves Amendment, a 9-year-old federal statute protecting car rental and truck companies from liability in operator accidents, was rejected from being used in a civil action against the vehicle’s owner.”
