The legal battle that ensued after a 2008 crane collapse on East 91st Street killed two people has taken another turn. After construction magnate James Lomma was acquitted of all charges for the Azure site incident last spring, the father of late crane operator Donald Leo continued his crusade against Lomma, filing a wrongful death suit. A judge ruled on Leo's side and didn't dismiss the suit, but now there's another wrench in the fight for justice, because the elder Leo passed away last week. The sad event will beget yet another proceeding: Leo's lawyers plan to sue Lomma (again), claiming an "abuse of process" and arguing that delayed justice called Leo Senior's heart attack. [NYP]
