Steven Avery, Don’t Spend your Settlement Money Yet. Teresa Halbach’s Family Files Wrongful Death Suit
Just one day after Steven Avery settled his wrongful imprisonment case for $400,000; the family of Teresa Halbach filed a wrongful death suit against Avery. Don’t spend the money too quickly Steven Avery. It appears that and much more may be leaving your wallet just as fast as you received it.
The family of a photographer allegedly murdered by a man who had served 18 years in prison for a rape he didn’t commit filed a wrongful death suit against him Wednesday.
The civil suit was filed in Calumet County Circuit Court in Chilton a day after Steven Avery settled his lawsuit against Manitowoc County authorities who wrongfully convicted him for a 1985 rape.
Avery, 43, was charged in November with first-degree intentional homicide and mutilating a corpse in the death of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach, of Hilbert.

Following the settlement Avery’s attorney for that case, Steven Glynn, said Tuesday that Avery would use the money to try to get released on bail and for his defense. Released on bail? Yea, good look Steven. Hopefully this new found money of yours will be heading off to the Halbach family soon.
Tim Halbach, an attorney and older brother of Teresa Halbach, filed the wrongful death suit, which did not specify a dollar amount in it, he said.
The suit is “our remedy,” he said.
I think the majority of people believe a wrongful death suit trumps a wrongful imprisonment any day.
