Soltys v. Costello, 06-3175

In a suit for injuries arising out of a car accident, the judgment for plaintiffs is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying plaintiffs' motion to amend since the plaintiffs' attorney unduly delayed the filing of the amended complaint; and 2) the district court properly denied plaintiffs' motion for a new trial since statements made during defense counsel's opening statement were not prejudicial and closing statements were not improper.
