Date set for Nick Bollea's civil trial over John Graziano crash injuries
UPI News Service, 04/14/2009
A Florida judge has set a March 2010 start date for Nick Bollea's civil trial involving a 2007 car crash that severely injured his friend.
Bollea is the 18-year-old son of former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea. The Bolleas starred in a reality TV show called "Hogan Knows Best."
The St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times said Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Judge W. Douglas Baird announced Nick Bollea's tentative trial date in the auto negligence civil lawsuit during a case management conference Monday.
Baird said he would set aside three weeks to hear the case if the parties involved hadn't reached a settlement by then, the Times said.
John Graziano was left brain injured when Nick Bollea lost control of the car in which he was riding during a street race and crashed into a palm tree. Bollea served several months in jail in connection with the wreck.
