By: Amelia Lolli, Esquire

On May 25, 2012, a New Jersey Superior Court Judge granted summary judgment in the case of Kubert  v. Best, in favor of a defendant, Shannon Colonna, who was accused of sending a text message to a friend while he was driving.  On September 19, 2009, Kyle Best, age 19, received a text message from a female friend while operating his motor vehicle in Randolph, Morris County, New Jersey.  Mr. Best lost control of his vehicle, crossed the yellow line and struck David and Linda Kubert on their motorcycle.  Both individuals suffered very serious personal injuries.
