A federal judge ruled this week that Porsche is not at fault in the death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker. The late actor and his friend, Roger Rodas, were killed in November 2013 when their Porsche Carrera GT crashed and caught fire.

The lawsuit, filed by Rodas’ widow, claimed the car was missing important safety features, including side impact protection, which could have prevented Walker and Rodas from perishing in the wreck.

The ruling in this case has no bearing on two ongoing cases filed by Walker’s daughter and father. Both believe Walker survived the crash but was trapped in the burning vehicle due to defects in the car structure.
