+ - Woman sued for texting driver

Submitted by linuxwrangler
linuxwrangler (582055) writes "After mowing down a motorcycling couple while distracted by texting, Kyle Best received a slap on the wrist. The couple's attorney then sued girlfriend Shannon Colonna for sending him messages when he was driving arguing that while she was not physically present, she was "electronically present." In good news for anyone who sends server-status, account-alerts or originates a call, text or email of any type that could be received by a mobile device the judge dismissed the plantiff's claims against the woman."
